Dear artist Nis Jessen
In my 19 or so years of collecting Sherlockiana
I don't think I've ever encountered a more beautiful Sherlockian book!
I don't make statements like that easily, but this book is
simply, and without overstating the case, drop-dead gorgeous.
Jessen has managed something like 600 illustrations in a sort of sepia
wash that appear on every single page of STUD and the publisher
has put it all together into the most incredible package.
The samples and descriptions on the publisher's site
do not do this lovely book justice.
While I have numerous beautifully designed slip-cased limited edition
small press publications in other fields of interest.
Gets my very highest recommendation on all counts.
I love the book already and it even smells great!!
I would suggest that this book be part of anyone's Sherlockian library.
You are going to love this book, no bones about it.
I've been practically fondling the blessed thing since I pulled it from my mailbox.
I really can't even begin to put into words how impressed I am.
The thing is huge too at
What a great present to get on the day after the 125th anniversary of the Battle of Maiwand!!
Right, back to fondling ;-)

Dear Master-Artist, Nis,
"..it is wonderful - far exceeding my expectations!
I love your Lestrade and the images of Baker Street are perfect - instantly recognisable.
It is much bigger than I thought it would be
and that just adds to making it special.
It really is the edition every Sherlockian should have on their shelves.
I am really chuffed to be in some very small way associated with this book."

Dear Nis Jessen
- your artwork for the fully illustrated version of A STUDY IN SCARLET
is breathtakingly detailed and is exactly what I have been looking for.
In my mind and spirit I can see Doyle, Holmes and Watson actually appear before me
and give me entire passages, scenes, scripts... it's amazing.
I thought we would replicate Paget's style in my new Sherlock Holmes series,
but yours has a definitive look.
I have waited a long time to find my own conceptual artist
and I would love to see you working for me as a
storyboard artist for a new Sherlock Holmes series.
-"One day you are going to work for ME, Nis !"
