The time is 1.00 p.m. on Monday 15th October. A small package arrives, too small to be the huge coffee-table book (Cosmos by Giles Sparrow) I am expecting.
What can it be?
Opening up the cardboard sleeve out slides a small paperback and a couple of extra covers – wooohooo – it’s my Springer “How to” book “Making Beautiful Deep-Sky Images”. The first copy to arrive in the U.K. delivered straight from the Publishers in New York!
They’ve done a really nice job, the paper quality is excellent and the pictures have come out far better than I was expecting – thank you Springer!
Should be available through all major booksellers in the next 3-4 weeks, keep an eye out for it, or pre-order on Amazon now.
