Remember the old days, when you and 20 of your friends were lucky to find a copy of the Single Leaf Woodcuts at the local library to pour over? And now? BAM!

Thank you nonetheless. It is always a book well to be recommended.
I sent you a friendship request which makes communicating easier. :-)
You're WAY too kind to me! But the old Waffenrock was built like a tank, it will stand up in the corner on its own. At least I think that's why it will stand on it's own... might be the encrustations of crud over the years, though!
