Palamedes PR is appointed by author Susan Denham Wade to promote her new book A History of Seeing in Eleven Inventions
Book PR agency Palamedes PR has been appointed by author Susan Denham Wade to promote a new non-fiction book that charts the history of seeing.
The consultancy shall be promoting A History of Seeing in Eleven Inventions, which is out now through The History Press.
Described as “A remarkable achievement” by Stephen Fry, Denham Wade’s heavily-researched book investigates the fascinating story of seeing from the evolution of eyes 500 million years ago to the present day.
Author Susan Denham Wade has worked extensively in the international broadcast sector, being the former project director in charge of One BBC, the BBC’s strategy to prepare the broadcaster for digital television.
A History of Seeing in Eleven Inventions by Susan Denham Wade is out now, published through The History Press.
Packed with incredible stories, facts and insights, the book highlights 11 inventions that have profoundly changed how people view the world, and by doing so have changed the world.
These include the invention of fire, mirrors, writing, spectacles, the telescope, and the smartphone.
Historian Susan Denham Wade, who in the early 2000s led the BBC’s newly-formed ‘One BBC’ digital strategy as project director, says that her inspiration for the book arose through the internet phenomenon that was #thedress in 2015 – a photo of a striped dress that provoked global debate concerning its colour.
For all media requests, including review copies of A History of Seeing in Eleven Inventions, contact publicist Anthony Harvison.
