"How soon he [Edward Ferrars] had walked himself into the proper resolution, however, how soon an opportunity of exercising it [proposing] occurred, in what manner he expressed himself, and how he was recived, need not be particulerly told"
- Actually Austen I would have quite liked to hear how Edward proposed to Elinor, so thanks for that. Grrrrr.
Ohh look what arrived! And look what's been bound upside down!
A Card From Angela Carter by Susannah Clapp arrived today with some lovely gold foiling on 140gsm woodfree jacket:
Now it may be because I work in Publishing and in the production department at that so I automatically check how the book’s been put together but first thing I noticed was that it’s been bound upside down.
The endpapers are this way (and very nice endpapers they are too):
And the case and jacket are on the other way up!
Whoops! Obviously I’m keeping it so in the future it will be worth millions. In our office this would go on the “shelf of shame”.
