Surely horizontal is more expensive?
My next project is a book in which I explore the influence of the music of Beyonce on the writings of J R R Tolkien. It's called "It you write it, you have to put a ring in it"

From the book of face:

It's National Puppy Day and we're happy as a dog with two tails, speaking of which... Thcrapth might be getting a bit long in the tooth, but he's still young at heart!

I think the latest missive may contain a little error -

Sculpted by Rich Kingston, the artist behind our A'Tuin and Luggage pieces, Terry Pratchett's pint-sized usher of souls is hand cast & finished by our team of local craftsmen here in Somerset.
Produced in a glorious antique bronze finish and standing 185cm high, the Death of Rats is an EEK-some addition to our range of official Discworld figurines!


Umm, if it's 185cm tall, it's not exactly pint-sized, given it's roughly my height :twisted:

Methinks someone has had a Bursar moment with the decimal place...
Grumpy old mod.
