See below the description from the dustwrapper flap.
This is one of those strange books where the dustwrapper has ‘photographed’ the wording of the title on the dustwrapper on to the front cover – see picture below. The purple dye used for the cloth seems to have reacted with the light much more than other colours.
Still in print, but only in paperback, at £14.99.
