Gordon Murray was a British television producer and puppeteer. He wrote and produced some of the most popular children's television programs aired in the United Kingdom. After retiring from television in 1982, Gordon produced and distributed more than sixty limited-edition miniature books under the Silver Thimble Books imprint. Bound entirely by hand, they contain watercolor paintings, special covers and bindings and slipcases. After 1987, Murray began to tire of the run sizes and the amount of work involved in printing letter press, and began to emphasize hand-made editions, including original handwritten texts accompanied by original watercolor illustrations.
