Looking For That Very Special Christmas Present?
I was recently asked to contribute a chapter to a special book that will honour the 10th Anniversary of Little Egret Press as a specialist fishing publisher.
The book is called Willow Pitch, a collection of articles, stories, chapters, poems, photographs and art work from some of the best names in fishing, both well established and new. As well as my own chapter it contains contributions from Peter Mohan, David Tipping, Dr Terry Baxter, Robin Armstrong, Graham Broach, Bob Price, John Nixon, Richard Walker, Jack Hilton, Fred Buller, Tom O’Reilly, Martin James, Richard Worthy, as well as a letter from HRH Prince of Wales.
And here’s what makes it a very special Christmas present. There will only be 100 copies of this hard back book, in full colour, which will be hand-bound in the finest cloth by ourselves in the traditional Old School Bindery in St Germans, Cornwall. Each will be numbered, and signed by publisher Tom O’Reilly. The cost will be a very modest £35.
In addition there will be just ten fully leather bound copies which will be decorated in an ornate style that Tom used recently for a large leather-bound book, now on display at the V&A Museum, London, at £200. Clearly these will become valuable collector’s items. Indeed I’d suggest they are a fantastic investment.
Pre-orders for Willow Pitch via the publisher’s website www.l-e-p.com and also by telephone, or by post.
