For small runs of relatively short books, isn't there still much to be said
for (automated) photocopying? For those who like to have hard copies of
things, that is. I was thinking of publishing all the stuff I have got
about bell-frames, by counties, in that way.
Getting Dorset printed has not been cheap, even with the printer being
provided with absolutely everything "on disk".
Gone are the happy days when I could buy Warwickshire (my first - from
Foyles of all places) for 10 shillings, Northants. and Beds. for 2 guineas
(sic) each, Oxfordshire for a fiver and Bucks for £6 15s. in Aylesbury
itself. Sorry, chaps.
