"In January one of this year's highlights first came to my attention. It was Barack Obama's 'Dreams from My Father'.
Further non-fiction which is worth the purchase price is the beautifully-illustrated 'William Daniell's Isle of Skye and Raasay: An Artist's Journey in 1815'. What a little gem, to enjoy not only the text and travel details but also the lovely reproductions of so many well-known prints."

"...one of the delights of this book is the inclusion of magnified details from the published prints - intricate pictures within pictures revealing a whole new layer of pictorial information often previously unnoticed."
