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.
