The Bank of England Bedside Book - A Thread of Gold 1694-2008
Paul Tempest;  Danny Denahy (Illustrator) ;  Basil Hone (Illustrator)
In this treasure trove of a book, Paul Tempest has gathered and edited articles, cartoons and reminiscences (his own and those of numerous others) that, together, provide a valuable insight into the workings of the Bank of England down the ages. Ever a quirky and idiosyncratic organisation, the Bank had a way of operating that was entirely its own, and was, argues Tempest, peculiarly successful. This volume uncovers the secret to the morale of the Bank of England, and the esprit de corp that lay at the heart of all it did.

Medina Publishing have brought out a companion volume to The Bank of England Bedside Book. Also by Paul Tempest, The Future of the Bank of England draws conclusions from the tumultuous events and consequences of the 2007-09 global financial crisis.
