In 2010 a letter by British explorer, missionary and abolitionist David Livingstone, which had been in the personal collection of Peter Beard since 1966, became the first nineteenth-century British literary document to be deciphered using a multispectral imaging process. Livingstone’s Letter from Bambarre was written by David Livingstone in 1871 chronicling his experiences in Africa to his friend and future editor Horace Waller.
Peter Beard was on Here’s the Thing with Alec Baldwin on WNYC radio in 2012.
Taschen reprinted Peter Beard in an updated one volume trade edition in 2013.
The 50th Anniversary Edition of The End of the Game was published by Taschen in September 2015 with an introduction by the author Paul Thoreaux.
