I don't have this book, it seems hard to find and very expensive, but I was looking at Winsor McCay books online and was stunned by the cover. The beautiful blue with the reds-I actually have a hold on it from our library, along with a lot of other people, so hopefully I will get to look inside. It looks like a lot of Winsor McCay books are out of print and have gotten really expensive. So, I may have to call in all the family for a group birthday gift (hint)-yeah, my birthday isn't for 4 months and already scheming. Little Nemo is on of those things I always have meant to look at more (or at all) because every time I see anything from it, I freak out.
So, I met up with Stephanie (of little birds, no longer, sniff) and Lisa over the weekend and it was such a delight to see them both. I actually had a little fabric goody bag for Lisa I forget to give her because I couldn't stop talking. I was able to avoid devouring my huge portion of bread pudding (blueberry and pear!) again because I couldn't stop talking. They are so fun, those two sisters, and not having a sister myself, I get very excited for Sadie and Delia to be sisters together after hanging with these two. We met at a cafe (cafe crema) and the pastries were amazing. wow. But don't you think it's a bit odd when you are given a number when you order, for not your food, but for your coffee drink? I was so busy talking (as stated above) that the time flew by, but there must have been at least 12-15 minutes before we actually were served our said numbered coffee drinks. hmm. not to bitch, but I'm just saying . .they were very tasty and attractive coffee drinks, I will say that.
**also, not to belabor mailorder, but yes, I do take visa on paypal, and the next issue will be for sale at a different time, to make it fair, and yes, if you subscribe for the first 3 you will get first choice at subscribing for the next 3 before everyone else, and I might make more copies (300?) for the next one and there is no "sign up" for this-it's a first come thing on Friday. and Canadian is regular postage, no extra. I think that's it for now-whew! excited and a bit freaked out!;) When is does go on sale it will be at kingpod, under "papergoods" then click on "mailorder".
