It is amazing. Looking at the size of this book I am surprised it only took you 12 years! the book is astounding!
I rec’d your beautiful, heavy, wonderfully printed and designed book yesterday and just had time to open it. I am speechless. No wonder it took you a few years to do. It’s an encyclopedia! I skimmed through it and just loved the jewellery, right from 100 years ago to now. Congratulations on an exceedingly well done Napier Bible.
it's so beautiful what you've accomplished!
A great job!

Well done, Melinda!

I will spend a lot of time with this book that's for sure.
