Do you know how big this news is?
Do you know how long people have been asking me to print a book?
DO YOU KNOW WHAT JUST CAME OFF THE PRINTERS?

An honest to goodness book! Get thee to mine store!

It is 68 pages, the comics that I still had that could be made into print quality images! Don't forget I was doin' this back before people were reading and so there was no point in keeping nice old files around. It is a REAL BOOK and it is nice and I have seen and touched and smelled it and nodded approvingly!

In very recent other news, I have just gotten back from the Pictures + Words festival at Washington College in Maryland. Chestertown is, I think, the nicest town I have ever seen and the organizers from Washington College did an excellent job of running the festival. The students were enthusiastic, the other guests were a true delight to be with. There are (possibly) scores of colonial type buildings in town, and the used book store has a giant nautical section. There were many ducks. What a wonderful place!
