As Memories Fade
PAUL JERVIS : 1943-2022
It is with sadness that we at Libri bring news of the death of a founding Director.
Paul decided to stand down as Managing Director in 2018, after eight years with Libri. During his time with us he had a significant influence on the academic and professional publications that became the company's stock in trade. A number of returning authors still refer to Paul as their point of contact, and his legacy lives on at Libri Publishing.
Importantly, Paul was more than a publisher. Business meetings would often include a discussion on photography, travel (especially to the Isle of Mull), politics and his family.
Paul was not only a work colleague but a personal friend to many of us. I worked with Paul at Middlesex University and in 2010 he helped to establish Libri Publishing.
We send the family our sympathy and thank his wife Trish for being supportive of his contribution to the company.
- John Sivak, Managing Director

Do you have a story to tell?
In recent years many first hand memories of the World Wars and other significant events of the Twentieth Century have been captured in print and on film. Though extensive, these are only a fraction of the collective memory of the people affected. Most of those involved have now gone, but their memories live on through the people they have told – their families and their friends – but this generation too will pass and with them the wealth of stories they hold on to.
As Memories Fade is a project to collect the stories of a passing generation based on memories and surviving documentation – both in the words of the individual concerned or through the memories of their family. Dramatic, tragic or even humorous incidents and experiences – moments in time - that deserve to be chronicled for future generations.
As Memories Fade will print these stories in a book, or series of books. These can include both short stories and full-length accounts. Inevitably, many of these stories will be based on wartime experiences, but the project extends into other areas of human endeavour.
Go to As Memories Fade If you would like more information.
We believe the book can support the delivery of the National Curriculum Geography across Key Stages 1 to 4, providing learning experiences in the areas of Locational Knowledge, Place Knowledge, Human and Physical Geography and Geographical Skills and Fieldwork.
