Top Deck is a 32 page newspaper, featuring colour and black and white images. Consisting of two years worth of images shot on the top deck of east London buses. The publication was designed by Utile Creative and features the work of Will Robson-Scott and James Pearson-Howes.

Foreword for the publication is written by journalist Justin Quirk, who writes for the Guardian and is the editor of HOUSE magazine.

"In popular myth, Margaret Thatcher reportedly said that any man
still travelling by bus after the age of 30 could consider himself a
failure. The quote is almost certainly apocryphal, but it stuck in
the public consciousness because it sounded like the kind of thing
that an arch-conservative would say; cars were the preserve of the
rich and successful, whereas buses were how the poor, the failed
and the antisocial travelled around the city. If there’s any truth in
that distinction, then it damns an awful lot of people in London."

The publication is a limited edition of 500 copies.
