Besotted & delighted!

Recently we had an order from Much Ado Books in East Sussex. I remembered the name from when our friend James Russell did a talk there in March on Eric Ravilious. I immediately scurried to look up there website - and what a joy! A fantastic melange of crazy type and a lovely story of a bookshop in a barn. Located not far from the magical Charleston, they specialise in books about the Bloomsbury Group, but obviously have all sorts of marvellous things and "Book-lovers find comfortable chairs for browsing our hand-picked books, ranging from fine press editions to recent publications to classics for specialist collectors." Heaven...

We carefully packed up their order in a suitable 'pre-loved' cardboard box and dispatched it from the Starch Green post office. Imagine our joy when we received not only a thank you note but a little gift too. The note opened, "We saved the parcel with our order as a treat - and opening it proved much more than just a treat - we are utterly besotted & delighted!"

The little books they enclosed are two of the London Transport Country Walks series with Ravilious illustrations on the covers - we too are utterly besotted and delighted!

Thank you so much, Cate and Nash at Much Ado Books.
