The 70-page digital sampler offers at least one essay or interview from each of the 320-page book’s seven major sections. You’ll get a feeling for the breadth of the book’s contents and contributors, the themes it covers, and — not least! — a tasty sampling of its rich and varied illustration, which ranges from commissioned drawings and paintings to archival imagery to new and freshly seen photography of the town of St Andrews and its beautiful Old Course.
