It's Here!

The long wait is over. After 2 years of pouring through photographs, scanning and writing clever captions, Where there's smoke Vol 1" has arrived.

If you pre-ordered a copy it will be sent very soon and I expect you will have it in your hands sometime next week.

I thought I would share a few more of the images of the book here to whet your appetite.
