Such a shame, but you can't be expected to wait for ever addg.  Do let us know when the book comes out please. We have a book stickie somewhere on the board, and a book review thread as well.

Hi all

Spoke with my brother last night and he IS going to put the pictures on a CD and send them to me before he next goes offshore (tomorrow night!!).  Hang fire - we might be getting somewhere!!

dear addg

oh blast and drat it all - if I'd realised that you were doing a book I'd have got the pictures sorted ages ago.  Sorry - kind of shows how much I don't know about how seriously some (all?) of you guys take this sort ofr stuff - but it is art - so I should have know better -  after all I live in an Arts and Crafts house in Surrey England and love all things A&C but especially (as a Glaswegian) CRM (I studies Architecture at Glasgow School of Art)

Well I've got the pictures.  Just need to download them from the camera and I'll post them.  I have to admit my mum's idea of a signature looks a little bit like scratches to me - but who knows!

We expect to be disappointed, but sometimes scratches are more than you'd think.  :sick:
