9780002201995: A1: Portrait of a Road

Running the 400-odd miles between London and Edinburgh, the A1 is Britain's backbone. This book is a photographic portrait of life on the road. Jon Nicholson's mission is to find out what makes the people living and travelling along Britain's oldest and longest highway tick. Fuelled by a combination of petrol and all-day breakfasts, his journey takes him through a land of extremes, in both culture and terrain, from the genteel to the gritty and from the rolling to the rugged. The text by acclaimed travel writer Nigel Richardson captures the road spot-on, and is the ideal introduction to Nicholson's pictures.
