New Yorker ad

On page 128 of the current New Yorker magazine, there is an ad, evidently
aimed at upscale individual customers, for customized books, handcrafted on
archival paper. The ad says, "your photographs are digitally reproduced" and,
"each richly bound volume is hand-stitched and rubbed to a fine patina". Ad is
placed by, Intelligent Marketing Co. LLC / 90 Dingletown Road / Greenwich Ct.
06830 / 1-888-324-1244.

Does anyone on this list know if these books are handmade in this country, or
essentially by factory workers overseas? Either way, there is much potential.

Another case where great opportunities and much competition are being created
by the latest computer-driven publishing tools.

Also -- on page 129 is a great cartoon by, "SIPRESS". Man and woman are
leaving a theater. Man is saying, "Like all great art it made me feel
hopelesly inadequate"
