And so too have Illustrators Quarterly issue 1 and The Art of Denis McLoughlin
I turned my back for just a minute... oh alright then for a week while I shuffled off to the Orkney's for a cultural tour of the distilleries and breweries... and lo and behold the Book Palace warehouse became the scene of feverish activity.
Four of the seven pallets outside the warehouse with a hint of the wacky wall mural our friend Dylan painted for us.
Detail of pallet construction - more difficult than it looks kids, don't try this at home etc. etc.
First stage of the presort between the two versions of the McLoughlin book and Illustrators; also between retail and wholesale orders in our loading bay area.
Retail orders how now shipped with the exception of the Deluxe copies of The Art of Denis McLoughlin which are due to be signed by the author David Ashford this coming Tuesday. They will then ship in the following few days.
I've had a few telephone conversations with customers and there are two things that need clarifying. Firstly the McLoughlin has no dust jacket - that was an error in the way the book was listed on our site. Secondly the McLoughlin article in Illustrators #1 is completely different in both text and illustration from the content of the Art of Denis McLoughlin; collect one collect them all!
Time for a resting chamomile tea methinks, more soon!
