Sofa Portraits Book for Sale









Sofa Portraits is now available in bookform - 42 pages, 29 pictures, measuring 30cm x 21cm. It's in an edition of 60.

It's not perfect in other words.
If you would like a copy, they are £60  - made payable to colinpantall@yahoo.co.uk at paypal. Postage and packing is included in that.
