In March 2007, Totnes produced the first known true British transition pound. Three-hundred notes were printed and handed out to the 160 people gathered in St John's Church at an evening called 'Local Money, Local Skills, Local Power'. These first issue pounds were rapidly followed by a second issue - more durable, wallet-sized and in far greater quantity. Other towns started to follow suit; Lewes in 2008, Stroud in 2009 and more. The movement was born. This book will attempt to catalogue all the known issues of the notes that followed on the back of the revolution. 


In a separate section, the world of LETS schemes and the vouchers that supported them is explored. Finally, by way of a short diversion, a tour around a few of the 20th- and 21st-century vouchers frequently collected by followers of the transition currency completes the work. 


The book includes local currency notes from British Transition Towns and similar schemes: Brighton, Bristol, Brixton, Exeter, Findhorn, Hawick, Hay on Wye, Kingston upon Thames, Lake District, Lewes, Stonehouse, Stroud, Tooting and Totnes.
British LETS: Bath, Calderdale, Cardiff, Chichester, the People's Bank of Govanhill and Newcastle-under-Lyme.  
20th- and 21st-Century Vouchers: Birnbeck Island, Cornwall, Herm and the Independent Money Alliance.


Printed in full colour throughout, this book contains scaled reproductions of over 150 notes in the above categories.

Brixton has been issuing notes since 2009. Now in their third series, the Bowie notes were first issued in 2011 as the second series, while Bowie was still alive. The third series has his 2016 date of death added to them. All are collectors' pieces. We have stocks of both of these, so 'get them while they're hot'.
