-It is as wonderful as I expected. Absolutely
professional. I am surprised by the quality of printed images - even
those small ones are clear and sharp. And the paper is exclusive...
It is a gem. Thank you very much, you did a great work with a
great value. I am happy to have it. (Czech Republic).
-Many thanks for the book, it is excellent! (United Kingdom).
-I knew I was going to like it and find it a handy reference tool. I
was blown away when I saw it was a large hardcover book with thick
glossy pages, copious color illustrations, and a highly professional
layout design. It's one of the best catalogue raisonnees I've ever
-It is beautiful! The pictures look amazing! (Australia).
-The book arrived packed like a precious object, it was revealed by
unwrapping layers to be shining on the table like a gem. And when
the gem was exposed it was clearly unburied treasure! When we looked
inside the marvels were truly beautiful, an astounding artifact of
astonishingly beautiful things. I know what cost and trouble that
was for you by the printers etc, dear Catharine, and our eyes simply
couldn't believe what we saw because the book is so beautifully done,
so artistic a way of presenting the subject of art! You have
bestowed an honour on Simon's name and spirit. Bravo a hundred times
for what you have achieved. (United Kingdom).
