Gun is a highly visual gift book perfect for anyone with an interest in gun culture at whatever level. Split into four main chronological chapters running from 1200 to the present day, the book showcases more than 300 different guns including rifles, pistols, sniper guns, machine guns and grenade launchers in a catalogue style format. A selection of historically significant guns - such as the Lee Enfield No.4, the staple firearm of Allied forces in World War II - are featured on individual spreads.

But the book offers far more than this. There are special spreads on all the world's leading gun manufacturers including Colt, Smith & Wesson and Beretta which offer a great insight into the production methods behind the world's most famous firearms. In recognition of the role of the gun in personal history and popular culture there are a series of 'gunmen' spreads on the likes of Billy the Kid, Bonnie and Clyde and Dirty Harry which recount the story of the chosen gunman and include an analysis of their signature weapon.
