An exciting day today, not only have I just moved in to my new office (the new HQ of Daryl Group), but it's also the launch of The Media Bookshop.
Yes - I know moving into online book retailing sounds crazy. But as someone who is passionate about the media I reckoned a specialist media online bookshop would be brilliant.
When I was a at journalism school I remember getting all the books I needed from a dusty old book shop on Fleet Street. There was something very special about that place, but of course it disappeared years ago. I kept thinking it would be great if there was a media bookshop online, combining the expertise of a traditional specialist bookshop and the convenience of online shopping. So here it is.
On the site you'll see booklists for specific media disciplines such as advertising, digital marketing, film, graphic design, journalism, photography, public relations, web design and more. The booklists were put together with input from experienced media practioners and will be regularly updated to include new releases and suggestions from customers.
Let me know your top five media books - include them in a comment to this post or email them to me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
