I hope you all enjoy navigating our redesigned homepage. It should be easier and clearer for you to access the website as a whole from the homepage. Let us know if you like it/can’t find what you’re looking for. We have reinstated the blog, which may/may not be a plus! We have also put a link to our Wisden Dust Jacket page on the homepage so that you should be able to buy official Wisden Dust Jackets to your hearts’ content: replacement ones to protect your books or traditional style ones to replace the photographic covers provided with the 2003 Wisden Cricketers’ Almanacks onwards.
Another development on the homepage is our gifts category, which will be a constantly evolving selection of potential (and hopefully inspiring) gift ideas. Again, if you can’t find what you’re looking for, let us know if you’re searching for something in particular or on behalf of a particular person.
We’re very pleased, too, with the introduction of our ‘featured item’ on the front page, which we will change regularly. We’re particularly proud of our first featured item, which is also Sportspages’ first publication: The Ewbank Enquiry by David Rayvern Allen. A beautifully produced book, though we say so ourselves – all thanks to the printers, Smith Settle – the Ewbank Enquiry has been a labour of love for David for the last few years. It is part detective story, part social and sporting history as it details the thread of cricket that runs through the story of a 19th Century cricket-mad family of adventurers and empire builders. It’s well worth a look.
