    Chris
    Amazon reckoned I'd be interested in this item having recently picked up your revised Backpacker's Handbook (excellent BTW)

    http://www.amazon.co.uk/exec/obidos/...909068-5044445

    Taking a break from all that walking?

    This page shows that Chris has written quite a few art books without us noticing.

    From "Francesca Woodman" by Chris Townsend
    An extensive text by Chris Townsend examines the influences of gothic literature, surrealism, feminism and post-minimalist art on Woodman's photographs. .
    Chris T - a reconnaissance man indeed.

    I have to confess that I've written a lot of learned works using Chris's name because I'm too modest to use my own. I hope he hasn't taken offence in any way.

    Hm. "Vile Bodies". Maybe not. Or is that the one I wrote after months on the trail without a shower?
