John Cooper's 12th title, an illustrated journey around Harpenden called Harpenden History Tour, was published on June 15 by Amberley Publishing.

The book guides readers on a tour of the town, highlighting areas of historical interest and any changes that have taken place in the last 100 years.

John held a signing in Harpenden Books on June 22.

The retired quantity surveyor said: "It went very well - it is not exactly JK Rowling but quite a few people came down."

John said positive feedback included that the "lovely little book" is compact, to the point, and his best yet.

Sites which are pinpointed in the tour include St Nicholas Church tower, the former village pond, and Rothamsted Manor.

John has also written A Postcard from Harpenden, Harpenden Through Time, Harpenden: The Postcard Collection, and Harpenden: A Village in Wartime.
