*In order to raise funds to achieve this important publication, we are offering a limited edition of 60 slip-cased hardcover books. There are only 25 left, and when the next 15 sell, the price will go up. The Special Edition includes a custom framed 8 x 10 inch original oil painting by Len. In an effort to give subscribers a choice, paintings of various subjects will be posted four-at-a-time on Len’s website, http://lenchmiel.com/ and will be offered to buyers in the chronological order payment is received. You will be notified by e-mail when those paintings are available for viewing. No trading for a different piece at a later date…that would make Len crazy.
