Book news

The printers delivered the first reprint of Volume 4 last week.

1st reprint of Volume 4 delivered


If you've been thinking of buying a copy, now would be a good time - together with the recent reprint of Volume 3 and remaining stock of Volumes 1 & 2, our flat is currently overflowing with books!

Suk Woon has done a great job with the printing. I was very happy with the appearance of the initial print run, but with the reprint she has made small adjustments that make the images look even better.

I also used this chance to correct a mistake at the bottom of page 33.
