“with colored plates illustrating the difference” [SIGN] 

Sherlockians and Holmesians everywhere have been waiting decades for a book like this. All it took was the enterprising mind of Nick Utechin, BSI ("The Ancient British Barrow") and the professional eyes at Wessex Press to bring it to life.

For the first time anywhere, all of Paget's illustrations are reproduced in high quality images, scanned from the original Strand Magazine and 22 original prints photographed from collections around the globe. Nick shares how the project came about, how the originals and their owners became part of it, and what secrets the Paget family held for years. 

It's an episode and a book you won't want to miss.

Toward the end of the episode, you'll find the latest Canonical Couplet. See if you can figure out the story we're referring to, and you might win a prize – you don't need to be a Patron of the Arts – every listener is eligible to participate! (But we could still use your support.)
