    Yeah - the old publishing problem, £43 is just prohibitive I'm afraid, regardless of how good it is. Shame. Worth waiting for the paperback?

    Usually when you do short printing runs, or when its "art".

    If they call it art they can bump the price up by a few hundred %, madness really as the books with information and a decent history aswell as pictures are usually less lol

    It just comes down to small numbers when and if the book goes into mega publishing scale then the price will drop shame its expensive as it does look really good and if it was £20 i might buy it.
    But well done lusker for publishing a book thats some accomplishment.

    given the quality of your work and the look of the front cover it looks like a fascinating read to me , would like to know a little more about the content but cant access your website seems to keep timing out , im interested in buying a copy and realise a short print run aint gonna be cheap however that also makes it rarer does it not !

    Well done

    Sounds promising, but £43 is a lot of money. Other recent and similar sounding books like Henk's "Abandoned Places 2", Slyv's "Forbidden Places" and RomanyWG's "Beauty in Decay" have gone for the £20-30 mark, which I think far more people would be willing to pay.

    Sample pages would be great, as well as an idea of which locations you're putting in.

    I will buy this, looks excellent. I looked at "Beauty in Decay" once and my eyes shrivelled up into little crisps.
