"The Redstone Book of the Eye" confounds expectations and counters the familiar. From Grayson Perry to David Shrigley here is a collection of extraordinary images to excite the eye, tease the eye, see things anew and make you smile. Julian Rothenstein is the brilliant editor and designer of Redstone Press whose books and diaries have delighted book buyers the world over for over twenty years.
