Last night’s book launch and private view for the Derek Boshier monograph and new exhibition at Flowers Gallery in Cork Street, central London, was a great success.

Friends new and old flocked to celebrate the publication of the book and the opening of the show and Derek cheerfully spent hours signing and decorating attendees’ books; in fact all the copies reserved for the night sold out.

    Thank you again for the invite Paul. Great to get my copy of the book signed by
    Derek, you and Karin! It was a “right turn out” as Tommy would have said!

    Best, Ian.
