Some Thanet pictures, and how to open a book

I managed to find higher definition wosisnames, computer thingys of the old aerial photos of Ramsgate, viewed on my blog, if you click on them to expand them and then click on them again so they get even bigger.

The rest, you should be able to work out the approximate what and when, feel free to comment on them and I will try to reply if it seems the right thing to do.


























Here in the book business there are mostly two types of books, the sewed ones, where the pages are held in by bookbinders thread and the prefect bound ones where the edges of the pages are suck in with glue.


In both cases when you get a new book or a book that hasn’t been used for a long time following these rather finicky instructions do actually help produce a more flexible and even curve in the spine, something that helps the book to last longer and better - biblical or secular. 

For the dedicated followers here are the books that went on the shelves in my bookshop in Ramsgate today http://michaelsbookshop.blogspot.co.uk/2017/03/the-frackers-in-bookshop.html

Post a Comment

Please note comments that may be libellous, comments that may be construed as offensive, anonymous derogatory comments about real people, comments baiting internet trolls, comments saying that an anonymous comment was made by a named real person, boring comments and spam comments, comments in CAPs will be deleted. Playground stuff like calling real people by their time stamp or surname alone, referring to groups as gangs, old duffers and so on will result in deletion. Comment that may be construed as offensive to minority groups is not allowed here either, so think before you write it, remember that the internet is a public place, that it is very difficult to be truly anonymous and that everyone who uses it leaves a trail of some sort. Also note the facility to leave anonymous comment will be turned of during periods when I am unable to monitor comment, this will not affect people commenting who are signed on to their blogger accounts. When things are particularly difficult on the commercial spam front I may turn comment moderation on for periods.

If you feel that someone has left a comment that is offensive and directed at you personally please email me (link on the sidebar) asking to have it removed, you will need to tell which post and the date and timestamp of the offending comment. Please do not reply to the offending comment as I will assume you continuing the dialogue as meaning that you want the comments left there.
