It is always a nice moment when a cover for a book arrives in the mail. I have just finished the index for Place: An Introduction (second edition).

It has more philosophy, sections on art, DigiPlace, architecture and more. The cover is a photo by Ben Murphy, a wonderful photographer now doing a practice-led PhD in geography at Royal Holloway. See for more.
