Brought to book
This year David Lloyd will be launching his first book. Just don’t call it a coffee table book…
Your first book is coming out later this year. What can we expect?
There will be a lot of the Masai Mara in there, but also a bit of Ambesoli. It’s mostly Kenya. What’s the title?
It’s a secret at the moment. I have a working title of ‘Natural Selection’, but I’ve got a title that I think is really cool. Being a graphic designer, are you also doing the layout as well as choosing the pictures?
Well, the funny thing is ever since childhood I wanted to do my own book, but I didn’t know then that it would be on wildlife photography. I’ve done the design, the images, the type and I’m pleased with that. I’d like someone else to write the foreword. I’ve got a couple of people in mind. I’m lucky that I can do the layout. It’s going to be a coffee table book, but then I don’t want it to be yet another coffee table book! What I have in mind will be a bit special, with a limited edition and a regular edition as well.
