Actually, my FR and RK look pretty much the same as those in the picture. (and the titles page of my FR is as crisp as the one in that set, too. But it ain't signed).

But the spine of my TT is slightly faded. Ridiculous - but so are those of other sets I've see. This one looks unfaded.

Unfaded _and_ signed? Unfair!

It looks lovely to me. Signed on all three title pages? Wow! Pity I can't afford it.

I'd like to know its story - that is, who it was signed for, and how it comes to be for sale.

The cartoon strip from which this was taken is my all-time favourite: Bloom County! It's about twenty years old. So yes; fan edit. It's very good; the font is just like the original.

The Welsh thing looks very tempting - it would be great to catch up with Shippey and Verlyn Flieger again (and wonderful to meet artists I haven't yet met: Rodney Matthews, and Paul Gregory).

But it's not to be. I reckon the trip would cost us £800.00 just for the entrance fees and four nights' accomodation. Then there's food, and travel costs. Out of the question.

But hey - we always have a good time at Moreton, and I hope to see you both there, and anyone else who can make it.

Here's another mountain scene:

Apparently it was found in a scrap book from a house clearance. Vendor is in Wimbourne - has he changed his ebay name?
