I agree with Eric. Coffee table would be cool but they usually have a lot of pictures as the bulk. A workshop manual style or an A5 size would be cool. I think a thick paperback would be the go. Hard cover is definitely nicer but costs a bit more.

Re: pix / graffix.

I have written permission from artist John Hancox to use his renderings ( royalties of course ) + my artist pal Ian Cunningham ( iancunninghamart.co.uk.) has agreed to do a series of period correct paintings to accompany the Tales.

So, the book could be quite art heavy ?

Hey there Hoof - all OK mate ?

I would like your permission to add a "guest" tale from your own postings - let me know.

All is good (more or less) BC.  Just been exploding Weslakes and trying to get ready for Bonneville.   Thankfully parts are still available.   By all means use any story I told you.   Hope you are keeping OK.
