1. Our site is still under construction. Please let us know about any problems. We appreciate your feedback.
2. Please note that most of images on our site were created some time ago with scanner instead of camera and are of poor (sometimes very poor) quality. We will try to replace them little by little.
3. Only a small part of our book inventory is listed now. Please watch our New Listings section.
4. At the present time we were able to list only few artworks from our inventory. This is a very time consuming process. Please bear with us.
