I once asked a very successful business man for some advice and he said quite simply 'do what everybody else is doing but do it better' I think that's what you are doing.

I didn’t know if my idea was any good, if my writing was interesting or if my images were clichés but Francis got what I was trying to do from the first moment.

It was such a pleasure to work with you to produce such a beautiful book! I feel bereft now our meetings have come to an end…

Don’t expect cool objectivity from me towards Hurtwood Press, I’ve become a fan.

As Henry Ford famously said, ‘quality is about doing it right when no one is looking’. Perfect words for Hurtwood Press. And, thanks to them, people will be looking at our little book for Brewin Dolphin for a while to come.

I’ve always wanted a book that wasn’t made with any compromises, that was made exactly the way I wanted it to be

Neil Folberg

From our first conversation, Francis not only knew what I wanted to do, he was ahead of me, making suggestions that took the project forward.

A short note to say thanks so much for printing the Trowers graduate recruitment brochure. I think it's wonderful; just as I'd always hoped... But even better!

The book is fabulous. And the craft is self-evident. Thank you.

I honestly don’t know anyone else who could have achieved the astonishingly bright and jewel like colours in the Islington Chapel books. They were an incredibly challenging task and needed a seriously expert eye for colour to get the best out of them.

These books are prestige brand items really. They were created to reflect the innovative nature of the Chapel Salons and to reinforce this with their guests.
