Re: Bookbinding News from the Czech Republic

Hi David,

Have missed you!  Looked for you on Tuesday but you were not there!  Wanted
to show off my shibuchi flowers (silver and copper!)  Wow, they are cool.
Am working on the pear book--did you see it?  Will bring it again.  It is an
anniversary present for my daughter and her husband.

Are you ok?  jansapp@GTE.NET
