Here's a suggestion for a luxurious Christmas present to you or yours.
We are quite proud of the most recent, sixth edition of the sumptuously designed classic wine reference The World Atlas of Wine published in 2007, and in the Concise version published in 2009. When Hugh Johnson and I got together to produce the fifth edition, the Washington Post called it 'the best collaboration of two Brits since Lennon and McCartney',
Now, however, thanks to specialist bookbinders Prometheus Bound (great name), we are able to offer you the chance to order bespoke copies of the book bound in beautiful purple lizard, the traditional paper-based material that looks like leather, with up to three initials on the front as shown below. The price is £99 a pop. You can even add a message embossed in gold or silver (priced at £11 per line) to personalise it even further.
You can place your order here on Prometheus Bound's own website. They expect to be able to send out orders within two to three weeks of receiving them. Last dates for Christmas orders is 27 November for addresses in the UK and 20 November for addresses outside the UK.
