The Man in the Caravan and other stories
IDeA, July 2003
For the Improvement and Development Agency Mike and Martin designed a key piece of promotional material to act as the agency's calling card and at the same time give it the feel very much of a book, as opposed to brochure. They worked closely with the author Charles Leadbeater.
