DOING THE BOOK OF THE UNICORN TOGETHER whetted our appetites for more. As our publishers were then in intensive care, Roger and Linda Garland boldly decided to publish this one themselves on the back of the international card business they ran from the Lakeside Gallery at Lezant, Cornwall. It sold very well wherever it appeared, and repaid us far more than books that have shifted many more copies in the shops through other publishers; but there were some nail-biting moments in the early days and we were in no great rush to repeat the exercise.
Linda is of course famous for her goddess paintings anyway, so she wore the captain's hat for this one, and the stunning collage cover was totally her concept. It would have been lovely to have had it three-dimensionally embossed in hardback but that was a gamble too far.
