DAVID FATHERS originally trained as a graphic designer and now runs an internet company. However he has always had a passion for drawing, painting and maps. Nearly ten years ago he was commissioned by the Royal Botanic Gardens at Kew and Wakehurst Place to create their first digital visitors guides. These are still in use today. Having lived in London for over thirty years, he is slightly embarrassed to admit that he only discovered the subject of his first book, The Regent's Canal, a few years ago. The success of that first book has led to The London Thames Walk and Hidden Rivers of London (June 2017).
