Salt of the Earth Book is Huge Success

Front coverWe have produced, in collaboration with David and Jan Penprase, a stunning ‘coffee table’ book full of wonderful images and tales from the families, businesses and fishermen from Newlyn in Cornwall.  So far we have raised an amazing £28,000 from the sales of the book and it has just been reprinted!

David and Jan Penprase worked together commercially for over 30 years before retiring seven years ago.  They have published six photographic books of their work.  The recipients of a number of awards, they have also lectured nationally and internationally.

The book is dedicated to the fishermen who have given their lives, paying the true price of the fish on our plates and the families they have left behind.

Everyone, including the authors, involved in the compilation of the book did so without payment, enabling all profits to go to the Fishermen’s Mission and our work in Cornwall.

This beautiful book is a fascinating insight into the history, lives and families of a Cornwall fishing community.
