The Hand Book (of hopes and dreams) unfolded its leporello pages in the Magic Lantern Room of Swedenborg House last night in celebration of its launching. There were toasts and book signings. The distant strains of old music hall songs were heard, mysterious Madame C made a brief appearance and Joe Pearson, Design For Today publisher of The Hand Book, as well as about forty guests, braved the evening’s wet and windy weather to celebrate my leporello’s launch. Great to see Emerald Mosley, Bridget Marzo, Jane Smith, other members of the Society of Authors, Fellows from the Royal Literary Fund and many others.
With thanks to Swedenborg House for kindly letting me use their fantastic Magic Lantern Room, to Madame C, to Roland Denning for taking photos, to all my guests (especially those who bought books!) and of course to Design For Today for publishing The Hand Book.
