Election photos wanted

Dennis Kavanagh and I are now heads down to complete The British General Election of 2017 (or what we fear may end up being called The Many British General Elections of 2017), to be published by Palgrave next year. It’s the latest in a series of books dating back to 1945, the longest-running national election series in the world. Based on the events of last week, and some of the material we have, it’s going to be a cracker!

As with the last book, we’d like to include some pictures of the election as it actually was for those doing the grunt work of the ground campaign: knocking on doors, delivering leaflets, holding street stalls, public meetings and so on.  Anyone who has such pictures and would like their work immortalised in the book, please just drop me a line, at p.cowley@qmul.ac.uk. (And yes, I know I could look through twitter and find pictures – but I need both higher res copies and your permission…).

Alas, we can’t pay – academic books just don’t have the budget – but in return for any we use, I’ll send a free copy of the book.  Plus, your efforts will live on forever in print.
