Grays of Westminster…Exclusively Nikon: The Legend and The Legacy – Pre-Publication Announcement

The Legend and The Legacy - Pre-Publication Announcement

We are delighted to announce the forthcoming release of Gillian Greenwood’s new book Grays of Westminster…Exclusively Nikon: The Legend and The Legacy written to commemorate Grays of Westminster’s 30th anniversary.

With an introduction by The President of the Nikon Corporation of Japan, the 208-page full colour hardback volume chronicles the story of the world’s only camera shop to have been granted a Coat of Arms by Her Majesty’s College of Arms.

Comprising 20 chapters and measuring 200 x 280 mm., the book covers the history of the legendary company, based in Pimlico, London, exploring its growth from humble beginnings to one of the world’s most celebrated photo-outlets serving a global database of customers, with an unparalleled reputation for customer service that is second to none.

“Grays of Westminster and Nikon represent a timeless partnership and I am honoured to be able to celebrate their 30th Anniversary and to be a part of their journey through history.”

These words from the book’s introduction by the President of the Nikon Corporation of Japan set the scene for the book. Magnificently illustrated with over 180 images, many by master-photographer Tony Hurst, the book’s 20 chapters include comments from major names in the world of photography and film production such as Heather Angel, Jim Brandenburg, Neil Lucas, Mike Maloney, O.B.E., Joe McNally, Tristan Oliver, Moose Peterson and Richard Young as well as celebrity customers such as Michael Bond C.B.E. (creator of Paddington Bear), Stanley Kubrick and David Suchet C.B.E., each giving their impression of the shop and the high level of service they have received over the years. There is also a chapter on the history of photography and the development of the Nikon brand.
