Following on from the success of The English Double Bass the authors are now working on the next title in the series, The Italian Double Bass. There will be 2,000 cloth-bound books and 2,000 leather-bound books published. Owners of The English Double Bass will be interested to learn that the leather-bound copies will match The English Double Bass in binding and style. Every owner of The English Double Bass who orders The Italian Double Bass will enjoy matching numbered copies.
Scheduled to be published in late 2023, The Italian Double Bass features some of the finest double basses ever made. We have secured around 150 instruments from some 80 of the great Italian makers with high-quality photography, presented in a similar style and format to The English Double Bass.
Buy The English Double Bass and pre-order your leather-bound patron copy of The Italian Double Bass to have matching numbered books both signed by the authors.
