The first ten copies of Zoe's Boat have arrived from China. The cover is quite heavy and there are front and back cover flaps which make this paper back feel half-way to a hard back. The Chinese printer WKT have done a great job as the colours are spot on. I discovered that WKT is a family-run business which pleases me; it was started just before the end of WW2 in 1944.
    The next bit of excitement for Plaister Press will be the arrival of the forty or so cartons of books. When the re print copies of Selkie arrived in the autumn, the lorry was too big to get down Trafalgar Street and the palette of books was deposited outside the typographer's house. I'm hoping we might avoid that this time.
