the book has made it to La Belle France!
Heather sent us glorious photographs (and boy, aren’t those glorious? – Tres Chic!).
thank you dear Heather!
and further into Continental Europe we had a virtual congratulatory wave from Beautycalypse who lives in Berlin (but is originally from much further East in Russia – isn’t that amazing) – the book reached her in its Virtual “ebook” form – so there’s no picture to show but we whipped up a visual of her Very Nice Quote.
this is so very moving, hearing from people all over the world as the book in its various forms (cloned at last!), encased in brown paper and string is brought up the garden path to the kitchen door by the Postman (clearly that’s in our imagination, mr. amazon goes in for the firm corrugated cardboard option, no string, but we do recommend adding a Ribbon to your copy, it likes that).
and now, in hono(u)r of our Friends on the Continent, a little musical interlude.
lie back on those pillows, pull on the satin mask over the eyes, sink into her voice and turn it up LOUD.
