It is with great sadness we report the sudden death of Michael Packard on Wednesday June 1st 2022.

The family are working through his affairs, and as such, no trading is possible that would usually have occurred through Michael himself, however some books are still available from his distributors.

For anything urgent, email   but please be aware that this address is infrequently monitored.

Your patience and understanding will be appreciated through this difficult period.
