  Because of the expense of self-publishing such a full colour book we are going to produce a standard limited run of the book of only 5000 copies. Don’t expect to find them at a discounted rate online….that will not happen. Even though the book is listed on certain online retailers I am only currently supplying copies to local independent shops (see below). 

Trade Enquiries Welcome. Email

NEW- Stockists. I have been out recently supplying local independent bookshops with stocks of books, below is a map showing those stockists, please support them and if you know of a shop which would like to be on this list then just email me.
