A PHOTOGRAPHIC book with “idyllic” images of the county is proving a bestseller, The Daily Echo and Dorset Echo’s latest offering has magnificent pictures taken around the county and is proving a popular Christmas present.

Trevor Johnson, owner of Paperview in Ringwood, said the new book Dorset: A Photographic Journey Through Towns and Villages, is attracting customers to his shop in the town centre.

“Yet again the Dorset book has been far and away the biggest seller this Christmas,” he said.

“We get no end of people asking for it each day and the pictures this year are even more idyllic.

“The comments from customers have been fantastic and it’s nice how it brings people into the shop.”

The book, sponsored by Brendoncare, features the work of our award-winning photographers and pictures by readers selected through a competition run with Castle Cameras.

The 176-page book takes readers on a tour across the county.

Another Daily Echo book is also proving popular. Bournemouth Air Festival: A Celebration of the First Five years, is the ideal gift for anyone who has enjoyed the town’s wildly successful air show. It brings together great photographs of the event from 2008 to 2012.

The Dorset book is priced at £14.95 while the air festival celebration is £15.95.
