Re: Venice

Harry's Bar in Venice is a nice place to stop for a drink or a meal. You can
sit around and think of Hemingway chasing women around Harry's bar in Paris
during the Liberation. Very heady literary stuff. May even have something to
do with books.

"While you're all looking through your Italy files for Peter's trip to

"hints appreciated, even what may seem obvious to you!  Thanks!

Be sure to visit Legatoria Piazzesi which sells its own handblocked
papers. Can't remember the street name but if you follow the crowd
trailing between Piazza San Marco and the Accademia Bridge you will
pass it on your left. Several shops sell marbled papers but they are
mostly from Florence these days I understand. The Piazzesi stuff is
done there and they have the big printing blocks in the shop.
