[Bell Historians] layout of information

I like a nice, clear layout of incriptions and weights, so that this is
easily browsable. Then separate paragraphs underneath the main table of bell
details describing in turn the bells, marks, tuning etc., and the frame, and
the gear. Then more underneath detailing any interesting history. I think
Chris Dalton devised something close to the optimum for his Dorset books.
Here the pertinant information is readily identifyable, and yet the books
are very easy on the eye and lend themselves to dipping in to. Some other
recent survey books published do not invite casual browsing, though they
contain all the required information.

As I've mentioned in a recent posting, I'm currently well on the way with a
book on the bells of York, and I'm wondering what people prefer as regards
content and layout in books describing bell installations. I attach a random
sample entry from the typescript for my book, and I would appreciate any
comments anyone cares to make!
