Tim Bradford is an illustrator, artist and writer. He is the author of The Groundwater Diaries (4th Estate, 2004) and Small Town England (Ebury, 2010), described as a 'warm, kaleidoscopic romp of a reminiscence' by Stuart Maconie. He frequently publishes illustrations in When Saturday Comes and the Guardian, and is otherwise to be found tramping the streets of London looking for musical instruments, old bookshops or lost rivers. He lives in Stoke Newington and Co. Clare, Ireland. See more at timbradford.com.
