Should you wish,  you can pre-order it on Amazon right now.  Which of course you would very much want to do because it’s full of lots of  illustrations of lovely posters, like this one.

Do you have too much information? Well here’s some information about having too much information.  These were very different days, my friends.

  • Congratulations! Shire have made a lovely job of the cover, too … most important to have a cover to be proud of! Hope this leads to more exciting projects for you.

  • Yes, they’ve made it look very handsome! I’m very happy with it. And if anyone has any exciting projects in mind, please do suggest them (especially if you are a publisher in possession of large advanced). Although I do have one or two of my own in mind too…

  • And another book mentioned in the Telegraph today! In the column before reading your name I felt that the article had been strongly influenced by you and assumed the journalist had been reading your blog.
