"Unmitigated England" is a personal view of an England lost and an England found. Accompanied by a wry and often very funny commentary, this is a remarkable visual record of very English passions, touching on everything from films to guidebooks, household brands to railway stations, traditional shops to very particular kinds of pubs. Peter Ashley draws on his collections of photographs and images to show both how this country once looked and how what is left is coming increasingly under threat, in this truly unique and thought-provoking book.
