Maybe it's because I'm a midlander
Didn't get much of a chance to chat after as I had to negotiate past a security guard to get to my bed for the night (if that sounds posh, let me tell you it was in Deptford). Walking the streets and trotting on to the tube I felt very much the bumpkin, though I deliberately wore my flat cap for the purpose.
Chris H-E at Salt tells me the book's just had a reprint, which is great news. People are buying it. If you haven't yet, have a look at it and read the PDF sample. I'm doing signed copies for a tenner including postage, and with Christmas round the corner, etc etc. Email me via tw[at]tonywilliamsdesign.co.uk if you're interested. Ho ho ho!
