Andrew,

I received my limited edition copy of 'Ripperland' today. Money absolutely well spent! Your photography is superb. Really atmospheric. I heartily recommend this book to anyone interested in the case (or anyone who just likes great photography.)

If you ever decide to do another one my name will be on the list.

I'm convinced. Just purchased my copy, perhaps to give as a gift, perhaps to keep...

Herlock, Pat,

Thanks both! I'm really very touched at how many people who have bought the book have gone on to say how much they like it. It makes the last (albeit very enjoyable) 20 months of work feel very much worthwhile.

All the very best
Andrew

Just a quick update regarding the book. The first print run of "Ripperland" has now sold out!

Mango HQ hope to have a brand new print run available to purchase very soon.

More updates as we have them.

All the best
Andrew

Andrew,

I just wondered if you are 'done' with Whitechapel now or is there more in the pipeline. After all there are many more 'peripheral' sites. Maybe even connected sites that haven't been photographed yet?

I've not really thought about what I shall do next to be honest!

There will always be that passion to create new photomontages and take new ohotos, so a follow up to Ripperland is always a possibility. The main factor that influences whether a new book could be produced is the availability of old photographs to use in the montages. These would need to be out of copyright (i.e. in the public domain) or alternatively permissions would need to be secured for any photos used from private collections etc.

I'll be shouting it from the rooftops if I do decide to produce a new volume!

All the best
Andrew

Hello, Andrew,

My copy of "Ripperland" arrived this week, and I'm delighted with it. I've only had a quick skim through it, but I tell it will be very interesting and educational. I think I may give to a friend with a birthday in October (but will read it first!)

Many thanks,

Andrew,

Just a thought but I wondered if you could use you're techniques and skills to create photo-montages which include real people (if facial images of the people exist obviously) and create 'scenes' from the case. I thought of this recently when I read in a book (Simon Wood's I believe) of Charles Warrens address. I checked Google maps and it looks like the original house is still there; a large, impressive building. We have photos of Warren so the scene I imagined being created was of Warren leaving the house in the early hours of the double event. Also Warren and Arnold at the graffito. Recreating scenes might be an interesting angle?

I have done one or two montages in the past that feature actual people. Usually they're either cut-outs from newspaper drawings or even just silhouettes, but I did one a couple of years ago of PC Ernest Thompson with his bullseye lamp outside the Swallow Gardens arch, so it certainly can be done!

All the best
Andrew

Hi Andrew,
