Photographs by Martin Parr. Brief text by John McAslan. Some of his most evocatively beautiful photographs, of a place that is several things simultaneously. "A motorway, a dual carriageway, and finally a local road connecting Post Glasgow to Greenock, Gourock, and Dunoon. I grew up there, and retain a great affection for the raw and intense beauty of the place. For some time, I've wondered how I might express this. So I asked Martin Parr to collaborate on a project to record these towns and the people who live and work there. The result is here. A celebration of life along the A8 corridor" (John McAslan).

Good copy of this fragile format.
