I enjoyed York Book Fair this year. I treat it more of a visual indulgence than a shopping experience, an art gallery where I am allowed to handle the pieces of work. I came away with a modest Puffin Picture book and lots of photos of the unique book seller’s signs.
Richard J Hodgson told me that he went to get a sign made but after he left the sign maker thought that he could do something a little more exciting than the one ordered. When Richard turned up to collect his sign he found this wonderful book shaped one waiting for him.
