Preserving history

Didcot A Power Station has been a stalwart of UK power generation since it began operation in 1970, providing electricity to millions of homes and businesses 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. We were briefed to create a ‘coffee table’ style book to celebrate and commemorate the rich and vivid history of Didcot A and the changing nature of power generation in the UK over its lifetime.

We created a highly visual book through the use of the many hundreds of images and ephemera available of the station and its history, plotted chronologically over several decades, since its inception right through to its closure. The use of foiling brought to life interesting facts and finishes. The book was linen covered and featured a mix of stocks, uncoated dust jacket and a ribbon.
