It looks even better - inside and out - than Book One. I've only seen several photos of the finished product and it looks magic.

David has a pre-publication offer on the go so email him on djvincentATchariot.net.au if you want to know the details. He may not respond straight away due to his workload but he will respond.

Ross are you on www.cfww2.com as I am sure they would be interested in this. If not do you want me to post the details on it...

After a few delays with shipping within site of the finish line, David has now had the books in his possession for about a fortnight. Some of you have probably already got your copy and have a hard time not drooling over it. It is superbly put together and loaded full of pics that I for one have not seen the majority of before. Lots of crew shots and very detailed captions. Looking forward to reading it cover-to-cover sometime this year.
