Dear wonderful Readers;
It is noteworthy that, contrary to all predictions, interest in good books is not dwindling.
There is a hotel in Seefeld, Tyrol, Austria, which stands for all the fables and legends this little olympic village has to tell. It is called ASTORIA, and run by legendary hotelier Elisabeth Gürtler. Our new book SEEFELDER MINIATUREN - ASTORIA - A STORY - A LEGEND is available now – in this store. It is in German, only (for the time being).
Visit the page of the new edition of HOTEL METROPOLE HANOI.
The first copies of THE HALF MOON TREASURY are being released – exclusively to our readers (and before its official launching date).
We have released a reprint of our successful book THE WESTIN EXCLESIOR ROME, the most famous hotel on Via Veneto.
The new edition of THE STRAND (Yangon,Myanmar) receives wonderful readers' feedback — thank you for your notes and mails.
We dispatch all our books personally autographed (as you know).
Have a save journey!
