Dear wonderful Readers; 

It is noteworthy that, contrary to all predictions, interest in good books is not dwindling. It spurs me and my team on to produce better, even more beautiful books. The new edition of THE STRAND (Yangon,Myanmar), for example, receives wonderful readers' feedback — thank you for your notes and mails. METROPOLE HANOI and ORIENTAL BANGKOK were relaunched in brand new edtions. The Oriental book is the first to present the (very) complete list of all authors who had ever visited. It was quite a challenge to compile it.

We dispatch all our books personally autographed (as you know).

Have a save journey!
