Baskin Catalogues



The show is coming down on the 11 Dec. but the books are a real value.  The
catalogue for the show was printed by Monarch Printing of Dallas on
Superfine paper, folded sheets, half sewn on 1/2 ( they burned up the
bindery's machine trying to side stitch the whole group of sheets  at once.
At any rate, they are a good value with high quality reproductions and and
well worth $16.00.
