I am pleased to announce that my forthcoming book Nicholas II. Portraits & Monuments, will now be published in two separate volumes during the next few months.
This title was originally planned to be one volume, however, the book has since doubled in size, thanks to all the additional information and photographs, which I have amassed primarily from Russian sources.
The first volume Nicholas II. Portraits features beautiful colour covers, 140 pages, numerous articles, and richly illustrated with more than 160 black and white photographs.
My book features an introduction, as well as a series of articles on portraits and their respective artists, including Serov, Repin, Lipgart, Bakmanson, Ryzhenko, as well as lost portraits found and restored during the post-Soviet years, and much more.
Nicholas II. Portraits went to the printers in February, and will be available from the Royal Russia Bookshop in March 2019.
The second volume Nicholas II. Monuments will also feature beautiful colour covers, 150 pages, numerous articles, and richly illustrated with more than 150 black and white photographs.
This title will feature an introduction, as well as a series of articles on the destruction of Romanov monuments during and after the 1917 Revolution, and the plethora of monuments, statues, busts and memorial plaques established during the post-Soviet years, and much more. More details on this title will be made available at a later date.
Nicholas II. Monuments is scheduled for publication in June 2019.
Please note that the publication of books on Nicholas II, are part of my campaign to publish new works, researched primarily from Russian sources, which will provide new facts and information on the life and reign of Russia’s last emperor and tsar, and also to defend the honour of the Tsar-Martyr Nicholas II from the injustices, prejudices and misunderstandings which still surround him more than a century after his death. Thank you to those of you who support my publishing projects.
