    Design and layout of this photobook on Billy Monk's work.  Monk worked as a bouncer in the notorious Catacombs club in the dock area of Cape Town during the 1960s. He originally began taking pictures in the club with the intention of selling the photographs to the customers - the people he was photographing. His aim was not to make a social statement, but his money-making scheme quickly turned into something else as he increasingly captured the raw energy of the club, its decadence and tragedy, its humanity and joy. 2011, published by Dewi Lewis (UK)
