Liverpool 1970s - Martin Mayer - Café Royal Books
"Martin first got involved with newspapers and photography while he was at university in the 1960s (at the time of the Vietnam War). He’d become involved with a group there that went on to found a newspaper that reflected their left-wing views. Martin had been asked to take photographs for the paper and so had the chance to be present - and record - many important events of the 1970s."

About Café Royal Books:
"Café Royal Books is the idea of Craig Atkinson, an artist and lecturer. Our first title was published in 2005.
Craig wanted to create a way to make artwork accessible to a wider audience. The solution needed to be small, functional, open to collaboration, affordable, and work independently of galleries. These ideas remain at the heart of what we do.
We’re a small family-run publisher based in England, next to the woodland, dunes, and windswept beaches of the North West coast — we’re always inspired by the vastness, calm and energy of this environment.
We make weekly publications, focussing on documentary photography linked to Britain and Ireland, printed and bound locally by a small 170 year old printing company. Libraries and museums around the world collect the books, so the work will remain preserved and accessible for many years. Our books don’t need batteries, or screens. We hope they will be used, create conversation and be passed down through family generations."
