Here at Bryngold Books we are all thrilled with a pat on the back we received for our latest title Return Ticket – the story of South Wales Transport marking the company’s centenary. Written by former journalist Jonathan Isaacs the book has attracted a huge amount of interest since it went on sale. It captures the very essence of a bus company that at its height in the 1950s was responsible for more than 97 million passenger journeys a year. Many people have praised the magical mix of material contained within the book’s 192 colour-packed pages, but the publication in the world’s biggest selling bus magazine for trade and enthusiast alike of a very positive review has topped the lot! Magazine editor Alan Millar devoted a full-page to his comments on Return Ticket and wasted no time in singing its praises. This is just part of what the well known and highly respected, bus industry journalist wrote: ‘This excellent book, marking this year’s centenary of South Wales Transport is a model other authors and publishers could profit from following when
tackling bus histories. It is well written attractively designed and delivered in bite-sized chunks that come together to capture so much of what made this former BET and National Bus Company subsidiary special to so many people who knew it’ Many thanks for that Alan. You made our day! The endorsement is yet another indicator of the quality and care companies like ours can devote to such a project from conception to completion. Where Bryngold Books leads, others can only follow! Best news is that following the success of Return Ticket and its predecessor Red, Cream and a Touch of Gray – The Western Welsh story Bryngold Books has two other compelling bus titles in the melting pot. Watch out for more details both here and on Facebook and Twitter. In the meantime many thanks to all those of you who continue to support our efforts to produce the kind of books that people enjoy.
