At last, but…..
Finally, 4 years after it was first discussed, the book on water-lilies, for which Pete was commissioned to supply photos, is going to print. He agreed the picture content of the book and the jacket photo with the publisher today. The book will be available in the autumn from the usual book-sellers worldwide – ISBN: 9781870673839. That’s the good news.
The bad news is that he’s disappointed with it; instead of the coffee table book we thought it was going to be, with lots of beautiful photos of water-plants accompanied by explanatory text, it’s become a book for water-lily purists specifically about Bory Latour-Marliac’s hybrids, which means loads of text accompanied by some photos. It’s a shame. But never mind, it’s Pete’s first commission ever to be published worldwide in all markets simultaneously – which is nice – and it’s good PR for us anyway.
