Praise for The Redstone Book of the Eye

His whole mission has been to make beautiful things and the results have almost never been equalled

Julian Rothenstein's books are extraordinary - their range of reference seems to be universal and yet they have a flavour distinctively of their own. This Book of the Eye is no exception - vintage Redstone
