It has probably been a year since I first ordered the book from Alinea and just on a week ago when I finally received that long awaited email - the book was in the post. There's no counting on the mysteries of the mail system between Australia and the world so I was beyond surprised to see this package on my doorstep today.
There were a few benefits to pre-ordering - one was that you got this lovely slip cover that isn't available anywhere else
and then of course there's the true star of the whole thing - the actual Alinea Book
And for us patient folk, the books have all been signed
I certainly look forward to slowly savouring this book - there's no reason to rush things.
