As a relatively new member, I thought it would be polite to introduce =
myself. My name is David Bailey and together with my partner Elizabeth =
Rashley we run the AVENUE PRESS in the South-West of England. We =
specialise in heavily illustrated, beautifully bound signed =
limited-edition books. Often these have print portfolios with original =
prints and slip-cases. Because the wealth of talent of the people we =
work with outstrips our resources we've just started Offcut Editions - =
small economically priced (GBP 5 or $10 including postage) wire-bound =
inventive books.

I'd be delighted to hear from list members who'd like to receive details =
of our books. They're quirky, lively and endlessly inventive. Here are =
details of the first one.

All best wishes to list members.

David
