This book is a must for any one who enjoys Jack Vettriano's paintings. It includes around 40 reproductions of his paintings, including the famous 'The Singing Butler'. (Did you know that this painting is the World's favourite poster ?) To add to the images are stories, poetry, and song lyrics written by a host of Scottish writers. Vettriano's upbringing in the Italian quarter of Glasgow is very evident and really adds to the mood of his paintings. It works as a coffee table book, and for those who want to understand the culture that Vettriano identifies with. My only complaint is that it is a small paperback, and screams out to be a large hardback edition, but at its current price is an absolute bargain.
