The book has arrived safely and it is a thing of beauty, thank you so very much, I'm delighted to have supported your project!
All the best,
Hello Franck, received my copy yesterday and i'm so happy. Thank you for your really great pictures and nice book. I had the surprise to discover that I didn't notice that there was a French version cool!
Guten Tag ! Das Buch ist angekommen und gefällt sehr, sehr gut. Auch das Buch als solches ganz wunderbar. Ganz, ganz lieben Dank !
Yesterday I received the book (in the NL)! Beautiful (and smells nice ;)). I love the stories next to the photographs too. Wonderful job!! Thank you!! Kind regards,
Just got the book. Excellent! Very happy! Thank you.
Being pedantic :-) for next release there are some bits which would need double checking or perhaps correction - they are not noticeable for non-native of Russia and doesn't distract much.
Ho ricevuto il libro la settimana scorsa: un vero capolavoro. Stampa perfetta, immagini stupende, il compagno perfetto di "Imperial Pomp"!!!vI got the book last week: stunning perfectly-printed masterpiece! vIt matches perfectly with "Imperial Pomp"!!!
Wonderful book, rich in character and colour. Perfect present. (Even loved the packaging cardboard printed label).
Congratulations on this latest project.
Got the book today and love it! Great work👌
It as a beautiful book, filled with good tales and stunning photos! I am happy and satisfied with this great work of art..!!
So ein schönes Buch!!! vAllein schon der Einband in Leinen mit dem eingeklebten Foto. Wo gibt es das noch? Ich liebe es.
Allerdings hätte ich mir gewünscht, dass das komplette Buch viersprachig ist - auch die Annotationen der Bilder.
I saw a sponsored post on Instagram mentioning your work and found your concept and the images I saw very funny, touching and inspiring. It didn't take me long to decide whether if to buy it or not. Congratulations and I can't wait to discover all the images.
I received your book. Thank you very much. I can't wait to read it !! :-) Congratulations for your photographs.
Your book arrived in time, by 3 days. My wife is delighted and is enjoying the photographs immensely. So evocative and indeed necessary in these times when our benighted country is led by a demented charlatan. Good luck with all your future projects.
Sorry I never wrote before but I love your book, the photography and its choreography and the stories and of course your sent of humour. It deserves to do well.
