Colin Thompson writes and draws children's picture books. These books are a sheer joy to read, both for adults and children, as they feature an interesting storyline and fantastically detailed pictures. You can buy his prints from his site or you could take the plunge and buy this one for U$4800.

ico - was it the "shelf"? That's the one I picked. "The Oxford Book of Branches" sounds like a keen read... I wonder where I can pick that up?

"Each double page pictures is - 661.5mm x 423mm plus a white border and will be printed on 500gsm Arches watercolour paper using the Giclee printing system which offers far superior quality to traditional litho prints. Even under the best circumstances, litho prints will begin to fade after ten years. Giclee inks are guaranteed for over 40 years."

now thats just not true.
