‘Upland is my kind of book. A passionately written and lavishly illustrated account of the natural history of one of Britain’s best kept secrets by a man who understands his subject. Andrew Fusek Peters has thrown his heart and soul into this book, and it shows’
Iolo Williams

'Upland, by @2peters is a beautiful thing. Published by @graffeg_books it's a testimony to patience and a sharp eye.' Jackie Morris

'Andrew Fusek Peters first appeared in AP in our portfolio pages. Soon after, he released Wilderland, Wildlife and Wonder from the Shropshire Borders, a book I was especially keen on. What is notable about Peters is his enthusiasm for the therapeutic benefits of photography and how the medium can bring us into contact, and maybe even reconnect us, with nature. In his new book, Peters continues his love affair with Shropshire. Like Wilderland, it takes the form of a psychogeographic diary and is a pure expression of wanderlust. In another sense, the book is a biography of a landscape, one that take into account Peter’s subjective engagement with the area. It’s a perfect example of dedicating yourself to one area, and realising the possibilities are endless.’ Oliver Atwell, Amateur Photographer, 5 star review

Andrew has also written and provided the photos for the first ever National Trust Guidebook to the Long Mynd. A beautifully produced 32 page paperback covering history, geology, wildlife and landscape. Called 'Carding Mill Valley & The Long Mynd' it is available online but also at the Carding Mill Valley Giftshop.





His last photography and nature writing book Wilderland, Wildlife & Wonder from the Shropshire Borders, hardback 160pp full colour, A4 landscape, was published to rave reviews.

‘It's a project that seems not to be about an insider looking in and hoping to grab a few award-winning images, but a person using his camera to step into the world and, with some luck, bring something back that can be cherished and preserved on the most personal level. It's a lovely book and, above all things, inspiring.'
Amateur Photographer, 5 star review

‘A lovely book with stunning photos and evocative writing'.
The Countryman

‘Andrew Fusek Peters takes us through the seasons of his home county in this 160 page book. Along with wide vista landscape images, you can see British wildlife in all its glory: pictures of kingfishers, lapwings, cuckoos and skylarks – plus otters, ponies, hares and bates – haven’t escaped Peters’ astute eye. A delight to read’

Their play, The Man Who Turned Into A Sofa, on the theme of depression, was a Radio 4 afternoon play. "This was so powerful, so economical, so completely honest, each of the characters laying themselves bare, without pretence or excuse, it had me hooked from start to finish and then I had to listen to it again to catch the phrases that rang so true." Kate Chisholm, the Spectator. His eco-thriller Ravenwood was published in 15 counties.
