New photographic record of Cambridge Folk Festival

Elliott Studios announces the coming publication (July 2011) of TEN - a decade in images, a new limited-edition photographic book by internationally renowned rock photographer Nick Elliott, featuring images from the last ten years of the Cambridge Folk Festival, England. Cambridge, one of the longest running and most famous folk festivals in the world, has hosted many bluegrass and old-time acts, and the new book is a compilation of some of Nick Elliott's best work.

The book is officially endorsed by Cambridge City Council, who organise the festival. Published by Rufus Stone Limited Editions, it is available in (i) a standard 80-page edition, entitled A decade in images, with a choice of two covers (Joan Baez or Robert Plant) and a run of 1,000 copies (£40 plus delivery); and (ii) TEN, a 144-page version with additional photography, signed by Nick Elliott, and with a custom-built flight case, in a run of 200 copies available worldwide (£175 plus delivery).

Copies can be pre-ordered here. Albums of Nick Elliott's photography can be seen online. Below: a sample opening, showing Dom Flemons of the Carolina Chocolate Drops (USA).
