We're happy to report that the limited first edition AOP tribute to the old Archibald Leitch Main Stand at Tynecastle, Beware of Pickpockets, has sold out. Many thanks to all those who supported the project by buying the book, and also to those who saw fit to recommend the book to other Hearts supporters. In addition to those purchased locally in Scotland, copies were also shipped to England, Italy, Canada, the USA, Australia and New Zealand. Profits from the book (£1,000) were passed to the Foundation of Hearts in May 2023.

The book documents the structure of the stand, inside and out, rain and shine, but also provides an insight into the stand as a place of work, with behind-the-scenes images during the working week, and also on matchdays. The book is hardback, printed in full colour in a 12" x 12" (30 x 30 cm) square format (practically the same size as a vinyl LP record). It runs to 104 pages.
