So today, with a little help in the photography department by my friend Anna, I finished the book.
It's for five really cool kids.
I've printed and bound two copies. One for my kids and one for Anna's.
They're numbered. I will at some stage print the other three copies, that I intended to print, and that will be that.
I also was fiddling about with a short book for kids about Romeo (and Greyhounds in general). Not sure what I'll do with that yet, or if I'll do anything with it. It's just something fun for me to do... this is me taking a break. :)
