Would you like a sneak peek at 42?
- a note from the team at Unbound -
Since our last update, Kevin and Unbound’s editorial and design teams have been working hard behind the scenes to make 42: The wildly improbable ideas of Douglas Adams a reality.
What began as thousands of photographs of archival material – shot on a phone as Kevin worked his way through the contents of the archive – has been whittled down, scanned and shaped into chapters covering everything from Douglas’s time at school and at Cambridge, to his personal correspondence, his collaborations, his innovative ideas about science and technology, and of course Dirk Gently, Doctor Who, The Hitchhiker’s Guide and beyond.
Douglas’s never-before-published images, letters, articles and journal entries are accompanied by insightful commentary from Kevin, and we can’t wait for you to see it all.
We’re delighted to share with you here a sneak peek at some of the pages, designed by Martin at Amazing15.
Pages from the chapter Friends and Music: the social side of Douglas Adams
We hope you enjoy poring over these.
Just a reminder that the book will be with you in 2023 - we will confirm your current delivery address with you prior to sending them out - so don't worry if you're about to move house!
All the best,
The team at Unbound.
