Techically Gas, 1967, doesn’t belong to the ‘People at Work’ series – but in every sense that counts it does – artist, writers, and era. It was the second of the 3 ‘Public Services’ books in series 606e, written by I & J Havenhand and, like all the books in this series, was beautifully, lovingly illustrated by John Berry. John Berry’s photorealism can take a rather dry subject and make it engaging.
This matt copy is in good condition. There’s minor spine damage, a mark on the back cover and a couple of numbers and small stamp on front endpaper but the reading pages are clean and tight. With a tally number of 180 and an original price of 2/6, I believe it to be a first edition.
