Finial Press was established in 1999 by Nigel Casseldine and Barry Hill.
Nigel is a Royal West of England Academician and a past member of the Association of Illustrators. He exhibits throughout the British Isles, and more especially in London and Bristol. He now lives in East Anglia where he and his artist wife established Romany Studio, a co-operative of artist friends who exhibit together at the gallery. The design and illustrative material in the guides is produced at Romany Studio Workshops which can be visted on-line at www.romanystudio.co.uk
Barry is responsible for the cartography in Finial Press’s publications. He came to Gloucestershire as a secondary school teacher in 1972 and quickly fell in love with the county. He is a keen walker and a mapaholic. Barry is the author of Walking The South Gloucestershire Cotswolds (Thornhill Press, 1992).
We are always willing to undertake map commissions for local sale points and will be pleased to discuss your ideas and requirements.
