I was so happy to receive my copy of 'Dear Ellen' this afternoon, I literally ran back into the house from the mailbox anxious to unveil the book. I'm glad to say, I was not disappointed.

This is perhaps one of the most exquisite photo albums I have seen in some years. I had been impatient for the book to be released since hearing of it. They style of the book, reminds me very much of "Romanov's Revisited", but I will admit I think this book is better as far as photo albums are concerned.   Page after page of rare photos of not only Grand Duchess Helen, but both immediate and extended family as well. I have not yet read the book, for I've just received it, but from what I have seen so far,I would urge everyone to add this to their collection. If the topic manner isn't enough to entice you to buy this book, the exceptional selection of photos will.

I must admit that when people like Coryne Hall look through DEAR ELLEN and find the book fascinating and "excellently done", I become quite proud of our final work for I cold not have done it alone a d many helped  me!

It was! I'm hoping it gets here today (especially since Marlene and I are both in VA) so I can enjoy it over the weekend.

Received my book and I'm so excited I can hardly contain myself! I've been collecting royal photos for 20 years so I can be a bit jaded when it comes to photo books. I usually enjoy them but don't always find something exciting page after page. This book, however, WOW! New photos on every single page.  I gave up trying to count how many of these photos were new to me. Yes, there are some familiar formal photos but by far they are outnumbered by more casual family groupings. Even many of the formal shots were new, at least to me. I have already gone through the book twice and will take several more passes at it. It has been a LONG time since a photo book has impressed me this much. I don't like to just throw guarantees out there, but I will guarantee you that if your purchase this book (and it's pretty inexpensive for a photo book and this isn't any 50 page book either) you will not be disappointed. GREAT job, Art!

Thanks...I tried to achieve something special with the book and I am beginning to get the feeling that I may have managed to!

Five of our books are now available through Amazon.co.uk and are being shipped from the UK, thus reducing the shipping costs for all our European clients.

This is the link of the seller who has undertaken this enterprise and who has stock of all the books and is able to ship immediately.

You should definitely give yourself a big round of applause for this book, Art. I had high hopes for it and they weren't just met, they were exceeded. Only The Four Graces of my recent royal purchases have given me such a thrill. I'm going to go home and peruse it some more after work! And again, the price is fabulous. I've seen comparable books go for much more--this one is packed full of photos and for about $50 with s/h.

Oh how very kind of you!

This past weekend I was with authors Hugo Vickers and Coryne Hall, both of whom got it, along with others. Hugo was very impressed by the photo selection, Coryne said it was "brilliant!"

I blushed...and smiled. It is always humbling to receive accolades from one's most respected colleagues.

Today I get to give the book to Prince Alexander and Princess Barbara of Yugoslavia, while also get to go to sign books at Galignani on the rue de Rivoli. At lunch French authors Chantal de Badts and Philippe Delhorme get to see it.

I get to give her copy to the Duchess of Croÿ when I visit them this weekend at their country estate near Dülmen.

All very exciting!
