Dear Groups 1 and 6, I am sending the bulk of my books to you tomorrow, but I did send a few at the end of last week as a postal-charge tester while most of the envelopes were drying. So it will be a staggered arrival! I'm very pleased that I managed to keep the book within Large Letter dimensions, it will make its progress around the world a lot easier.
Here's a sneak peek:
It's not even really a peek, is it. This is just the spines of all the books, bound and wrapped ready for sending. They are very tall and thin, and there are two separate books (titles 12 and 58) within the one cover. I'll explain more later, when the recipients have seen it first, which is all the fun of the project, isn't it?
Poor old book, it sat in my mind for months, and then when I had the time to do it, I got sick, and then when I recovered, we had (and are still having) a horrendous heat wave. So it's been an interesting process, and there is much that I would change, but having it done is really a relief. I hope my group-mates can find something in it that they like.
I also hope everyone is managing to wrangle theirs! I just love what I've been seeing over the past year. I've decided to do a stock-take of my leftover BAO volumes (from earlier editions and this one) and offer them as swaps, if anyone is interested in the notion.
