The book is still in print, but only in paperback, at £20.00. However, the paperback edition is in a much smaller format (21.6 x 14 cm) and, it would appear, printed on inferior paper, so that the details of the paintings are more difficult to see. Our hardback copy is bound in cloth and will open flat.
Beware – this is a heavy book and would cost a good deal to send abroad. If you are outside the U.K. and are thinking about buying it, please email us first on firstname.lastname@example.org and we will quote a price for postage.
