Reference noteColophon: 'This book is not a travel guide for people wanting to visit the desert. It is not a a teaching manual for students, nature lovers or conservationists. It's not a book for anyone looking for facts. Actually it is not a book at all, but a series of hand-painted water-colours - bound like a book. The text serves to 'illustrate' the images. The series is dedicated to the Namib who inspired it, too, and whose beauty and sublimity I experienced often.' Signed by the author on each painting; text in manuscript. Bound in full red leather with title in gold.
