Limited Edition Luxurious Golfer’s Book
This is definitely an item that collectors and golfers will want to own. Wonderland Publications have just released the ultimate golfer’s book and there are only 10 available of this book – though book isn’t quite the right term to describe this labor of love that is more art than it is functional.
The book is called Golf and is the brainchild of artists/authors/TV producers Paul Skellett and Simon Weitzman. They started out knowing next to nothing about golf and spent the last 4 years creating a book (really a work of art) that covers the game, the courses, and the story of golf.
