If you are a keen skier or boarder then these ski and snowboarding books make an ideal gift and add a touch of colour and glamour to your coffee table. There are a few snippets of skiing & boarding stories to go along with some of the paintings as well. I get a lot of people contacting me asking for help choosing a print or an original for their skiing / snowboarding friend which can be great fun and 99% of the time I get it right. These new books particularly the luxury book and the larger book of paintings below can make a great gift and take all the headache out of choosing the right print.
There are 3 different sizes of book available. There is the hardback book roughly A4 size or 21 x 26cm, 52 pages approx. £24 and a larger version at 33 x 28cm, 52 pages with heavier weight paper approx. £70. You can order them directly from the printers below. You can preview the book before you buy it, then select the size book you want and order. The big book isn’t cheap, but they are just expensive to print that size in small print runs and I sell them at close to cost.
If you really want a treat then I have made a A3 size luxury full colour book with heavy weight art paper, photographically printed pages and lay flat binding. If you want to really impress your coffee table then this is the one to go for. Its still in the design studio but I will post a link here as soon as it is complete. Likely cost will be approximately £150. Due out in September. Email me to go on the waiting list. If you can’t decide on which painting or print to buy as a gift then this is a great alternative

Painting & Poetry books from the early days.
Some of my older books can be purchased on Amazon.com or Amazon.co.uk or from the links for each book below. If you want a bit of history or your are interested in spiritual poetry then take a look at these books. Back in 2004 to 2007 I spent a lot of time in India and the paintings and spiritual poems reflect this. They are all in soft back full colour and cost approx. £15.

Mindcracker Spiritual Love Poems and Paintings from 2005
Crack your mind with this inspiring book.A truly beautiful and inspiring book, challenging the dominance and hypocrisy of our mind centred world, prompting us to live more in the heart and trust our intuition. As we move from our mind to our heart we learn to live in the present and let go of old patterns and fears to embrace life. Beautiful vibrant colourful paintings by the author illuminate the pages. Riddles of life, mind and soul reminiscent of Rumi’s poems and Lao Tzu’s Tao Te Ching’s texts inspire the reader.
