  • Kwaidan: Stories and Studies of Strange Things

  • Palmyra 1885: The Wolfe Expedition and the Photographs of John Henry Haynes

    Benjamin Anderson & Robert G Ousterhout

    The sequel to Ousterhout’s wonderful ‘John Henry Haynes’ of 2011, republished to coincide with this and also available from Sandoe’s.

    Haynes was the photographer with the Wolfe Expedition which, on their return from Mesopotomia, spent five days at the oasis site of Palmyra, once home to the legendary Queen Zenobia. Hayne’s hundred-odd photographs of the site are an invaluable and stunning record, and in great part never published before.

  • Hermes: Pop-Up

    Stephane Foenkinos & Bernard Duisit, introduction by Pierre-Alexis Dumas

    Who could imagine such an eccentric and delightful thing as this? A book of creative wit, taste and imagination, in which mad words accompany the pop-up flights of fancy that are Hermes scarves, with Pegasus as our steed, cockatoos for company and a rooftop party as our destination. Beautiful colour printing on very good paper, this is a treat for hand and eye.

    Hardback £22.50
