Why are there only 5000 copies of the book?

 When I looked at producing The Wainwrights in Colour Book I didn’t want to be seen to be milking the “Wainwright” name for ever and a day so I was always intending to produce a book of a single limited run. 5000 was a figure that I came up with that was both economical to print and enough to give lovers of the Lakeland Fells a chance to obtain a copy. I know that some people assume that if by some slim chance this edition sells out I will be producing another print run, believe me, this will not happen, once the 5000 copies have been sold there will not be a follow up print run……ever.
