This book is easy enough to obtain and we don’t usually promote books for sale* here. However, this one for sale at Arty Bees is a bit special – it is actually signed by the man himself.
(* – we don’t promote books for sale as such, but we will post news of events – launch events, signing/reading tours etc by local authors. Drop us a line if you know of such an event)
