The Deluxe Edition of Blue Water Classics is now available for pre-order. Each book is signed, numbered and presented in its own slipcase, with a unique hardback cover featuring an illustration of the race’s rhumb line and course, specially commissioned for the book by Tasmanian artist David Fooks.
This very special release also comes with either an A4 print of ‘1945 Winner Rani and Captain John Illingworth’, the first in my series of commemorative Art Deco posters (a collaboration with Artist John Penney), or, an A4 print of ‘Tasman Island Shrouded In Mist’ which features in the book. Both artworks printed by Full Gamut Fine Art Printers in Hobart on Hahnemühle 100% cotton papers and the highest quality archival ink-sets.
The books are currently with the printer and will arrive in early November, when they will be immediately shipped to your specified address.
