Hi Ian,

I was quite overwhelmed by the incredible amount of entries, I thought my computer would explode!  Because I was under tight deadlines I only got in touch with those artists I could definitely include, that was back in April this year. Because of the sheer volume of images sent in overall, the difficult selection process and the amount of work that goes into prepping the final book manuscript, I just could not get back to everyone who entered but whose work I was, unfortunately, unable to include.

Hope to see you around in the 'burgh !
Brigitte
