Captivating and immersive

From the moment I opened these books, I was transported back in time to the vibrant streets of bygone Coventry. It was amazing to re-live the rise of 2-Tone once again.

I couldn't put these books down once I started flipping through them. From the iconic venues to the birth of 2-Tone, every aspect of Coventry's cultural history is beautifully captured. As someone who lived through the era, I can attest to the authenticity and passion poured into these pages. Plus, the free gift was a lovely surprise
