Ex professional footballer – now broadcaster and public speaker, Paul McVeigh, approached Tidbury Media to transform his manuscript into a finished paperback book. We typeset the manuscript and produced the cover design from his brief. His book will now be available through his website and available for purchase at his events and attendances.
Between 2011 and 2018 we published Mayhem! Magazine (www.issuu.com/mayhemmagazine) a free culture and lifestyle magazine. We reached issue 50 in August 2018, with over 500,000 individual printed copies circulating, and realised that all good things must come to an end, so what better time to call it ‘a day’. It has been a fantastic run and we’ve had great fun, met loads of people and interviewed some inspiring people. You can still enjoy every single issue available on the above link. To all those involved we THANK YOU.

Play The Ball Magazine provides members of the Royal Navy and Royal Marines sporting community with an annual summary of events and achievements within the Royal Navy and Royal Marines Rugby League including forewords from the President and the Chairman along with stories from throughout the year.
“Tony Beasley really did run away from home to go to sea. This book recalls some of the adventures he had during his time in the Royal Navy. A remarkable story that includes his retelling of the part he played in a mission that took place during the Cold War. One that took place on a vessel he had vowed he would never serve on, yet a mission that, with typical stoicism and courage, he faced up to and dealt with in such a way that, ultimately, he emerged from it being regarded as a hero. A hero who wasn’t allowed to tell anyone where he had been or what he had done. Memories of a life spent at sea told with a refreshing mix of dark humour and brutal honesty. Tony doesn’t hold back, he tells things as he sees it. Even if it gives someone a bloody nose in the process.”
Commissioned as part of ‘Everyone Has A Story To Tell’, working alongside Author Edward Couzens-Lake, we created this engaging book jacket design and typeset the book. Tony, from Emsworth in Hampshire, was overwhelmed with the graphic design.

Partnered with author Edward Couzens-Lake, we were commissioned to design and produce Our Joyful Life, the biographical life story of Gary Hatt and Vera Thornhill. Based in Norwich the mother/son duo wanted to have their life story written and typeset into a professional book for posterity. A cathartic process for many – having the time to revisit moments in life for future generations to learn from and enjoy.
Their life’s ‘journey’ has been dominated by world travel and we wanted to represent that visually with optimism. The book is printed as a short run in both softback and hardback.
