By Bill Evans and Andrew Lawson

In the last decade or so, English towns and villages have been altered almost beyond recognition, and small specialist shops, run by families who have taken a fierce pride in their traditions of quality and service, are in danger of disappearing forever. A Nation of Shopkeepers is a photographic tribute to these bastions of personal enterprise while they still survive. Bill Evans and Andrew Lawson have combed England to record the strong feeling of period and design that these small shops encompass, whether through style and decoration of their frontages and interiors, their signs, displays of wares or the craftsmanship they offer their customers.
