If you want a non-fiction book about gnomes then there is very little for you to choose from. This is certainly the best one I have come across so far. It is a large book with lots of great pictures and information. My copy was over ten years old and I believe it is the latest version so obviously it is getting a bit dated. There was no mention of whistling gnomes with proximity sensors, gnomes carrying solar powered lanterns or suchlike. At the time this book was written they probably did not exist. As far as I know the French Gnome Liberation Front is now defunct, their website is no longer active. There are a few, in my view, major omissions from the section on great gnome collections, not least the largest collection in the world in Austria (probably because it is not open to the public) but I do not want to give the impression that this is not an excellent book because it definitely is.
Maybe we should try and write a better one 🙂
