Despite being from NZ, I really dont read the Herald as often as I should, but I left NZ over 6 years ago.
Number two - I have started another blog called Historia's Books. Its going to be my picture file, and will be showing mainly pictures of books, title pages and so on. A link to my new blog is in the sidebar.
And lastly, I am still working on the glossary about Book Binding for Annie's Book, mentioned a few days ago. I have found a number of excellent book binding links and will be posting them soon.
