After the Oxford Fair

We spent last weekend at the major Book Fair in Oxford and had a good and successful time. We had restricted what we showed to recent publications and some 'Specials' of earlier titles where we still had copies. Sales in both categories were encouragingly brisk and the sample printed pages from The Diary of a Dead Officer (see previous post, below) made a tremendous impact.

As I woke on Monday morning I had a lovely sense of freedom to do many things but, when it came to it, we two poor oldies realized that we were too utterly exhausted from all that talking etc that we could not manage to do anything except, in my case, to haul my camera around for a bit in what happened to be a gloriously golden Autumn day.

One or two people at the Fair had been kind enough to say that they have enjoyed my photographs on the blog . . . so I am encouraged to post these now. Then back to the press!
