This is a collection of artwork previously published in a series of calendars by George Allen & Unwin for the years 1974 and 1976-1979.

Not reprinted.

Some copies have been seen in a glassine dustwrapper.

The book was issued in a cream-coloured slipcase. Two variants of the background have been seen, one distinctly more yellow than the other.

Later copies were issued without the slipcase, although slipcased copies were available until at least 1988.

The book can be seen here.
