Re: The Philosophy of Bookbinding



Hi Wes

But if we are to interpret Gabriel from the way you bind and present the
book, it IS presenting information.

PS:  Gabriel is most famous as a messenger and is also the patron saint of
telecommunications: perhaps you could make the book speak!

PPS: Gone off Michael then?  *grin*  Happy Michaelmas anyway :)
