In a book of this magnitude there are a million decisions to be made and just as many places to make mistakes. There are a few in this book – its amazing what you spot the day after it goes to print!
Funnily enough, I seriously considered putting an image on the wrong page and making it a sponsored competition with a prize. As it happens we inadvertently did this – I am still not sure how it happened and how so many people who looked at the book could miss it. Sometimes you can’t see for looking!
