The Society Book Shop

When it comes to books on the social sector there are few collections with the depth and range of those published by Amherst Media. They have a simple formula. Every book is 128 pages, soft backed and in American Quarto size of 8.5x11inches. With this page limitation comes a certain conciseness of subject, typified perhaps by Norman Phillips' High Key, Low Key, and now, Middle Key lighting guides, one for each topic. The problem for the would-be purchaser is deciding which ones to go for (and it has to be more than one!). The easiest way is to browse the book stand at one of the many events that The Societies attend or organise. Failing that you will find about 150 words on each of the books on the website www.thesocieties.net/store. The covers shown in the combination photograph above are the recent releases.
