Dear Hans,

I was in Novi Sad and was very much impressed by the book! What a 
tremendous quality of pictures and drawings.
Therefor I would like to order it, but unfortunately I could not find 
the book listed on the website mentioned.
Is it possible I order directly to you, or should I wait a little?

Friendly greetings,
