The River and the Railway tells the story of property investment company Derwent London. The book outlines the 25 year history of Derwent Valley Holdings and its merger with London Merchant Securities in 2007 which has its origins in the nineteenth century.
The book reveals Derwent’s philosophy and approach and how it works closely with leading architects, artists and designers to produce inspiring office spaces in London.
The book consists of 160 pages with a case bound cloth cover and slipcase. Screen printed card dividers are inserted at the beginning of each chapter. A six page fold-out features a photo-montage of a fictitious street composed entirely of Derwent London buildings.
We were involved in all stages of the process from planning and story-boarding to design. We worked closely with Derwent London and writer Hugh Pearman. The book was produced in an edition of 2,000 copies with a limited run of 100 slipcases.
