LONDON, January 20, 2016 – The multi-award-winning Nikon-only shop based in London have published a superb 208-page full colour hardback volume to mark their 30th anniversary, with an introduction by Kazuo Ushida, President of the Nikon Corporation of Japan.

Author Gillian Greenwood’s Grays of Westminster…Exclusively Nikon: The Legend and The Legacy, chronicles the story of the world’s only camera shop to have been granted a Coat of Arms by Her Majesty’s College of Arms. The legendary shop, based in London, was founded 30 years ago by Gray Levett.

Comprising 20 chapters and measuring 200 x 280mm, the book covers the company’s history, exploring its growth from humble beginnings to one of the world’s most celebrated photo-outlets, serving a global database of customers, with an unparalleled reputation for customer service that is second to none.

“Grays of Westminster and Nikon represent a timeless partnership and I am honoured to be able to celebrate their 30th Anniversary and to be a part of their journey through history.”

These words from the book’s introduction by Kazuo Ushida, President of the Nikon Corporation of Japan, set the scene for an extraordinary book about an extraordinary shop.

Magnificently illustrated with over 180 images, many by master photographer Tony Hurst, the book includes contributions from major names in the world of photography and film production such as Heather Angel, Jim Brandenburg, Neil Lucas, Mike Maloney, OBE, Joe McNally, Tristan Oliver, Moose Peterson and Richard Young as well as celebrity customers such as Michael Bond (creator of Paddington Bear), Stanley Kubrick and David Suchet, each giving their impression of the shop and the high level of service and help they have received over the years. There is also a chapter on the history of photography and the development of the Nikon brand, as well as a biographical profile of Gray Levett.

The book will be launched on Wednesday, 3rd February, but is currently available to pre-order directly from Grays of Westminster: http://www.graysofwestminster.co.uk/books/legend-and-legacy.php
