As perhaps befits a book which is arguing that a picture is worth a thousand words, there is no dustwrapper blurb. We have therefore included below the first part of the book’s introduction, with extracts from reviews of the book on the rear of the dustwrapper.
The book was originally published in 1990, but it has never been revised, and is still in print in the USA at $58.00 post paid. Beware – most of the copies you will find on other booksellers’ websites are ex-library. Our copy is not.
