Professional photographer Tim Andrew has just launched a crowdfunding project to fund a fabulous hardback photo book about the 17th century windmill in his home village Brill. This Buckinghamshire historic landmark recently underwent a major restoration, which Tim photographed extensively.
If you love windmills, you surely will have visited Brill’s 17th century post mill up on Brill Common.
One of the last few still standing in England. It recently featured in a Midsomer Murders episode.
Photographer Tim Andrew, from Brill has visited it hundreds of times over the last 25 years and is publishing a coffee table book full of fabulous photos captured when the light is glorious or there’s a community event that involves the Windmill.
He said: The 2008-09 restoration of the Windmill, was the trigger for deciding to make a book of the many photos I'd taken over the years. It seemed such a rare opportunity to photograph the inner workings that are usually hidden from view.
The book is currently on Kickstarter.com, where you can pre-order it. The funding period ends on April 12th.
This book is filled with double page spread photos and tons of detail shots, with accompanying text to explain the context.
Brill Windmill will be 350 years old in 2018, so the book will be in print well in time for forthcoming celebrations. For more info and to pre-order the book please go to Kickstarter.com and search for "Brill Windmill Book" or follow this link:
