The first prototype of the box for the Exemplary copies of our Waterloo anthology has arrived. It has been beautifully crafted in sapele wood and then finished in our bindery. There are more pictures in the gallery at waterloobook.co.uk Now we have the box we can concentrate on the finish and the linings, so please keep in mind that it will change as we improve on the final details.

I know that strictly speaking you can't really have limited edition chocolate. That said on a recent trip to Guernsey to discuss the Folio Society's edition of The Toilers of the Sea [ see previous posts ] I came across chocolatier Ben Le Prevost, click on his name to discover his extraordinary [ and we don't use that word lightly ] range of fantastic chocolates. My personal favourites include peanut butter on toast and basil. Invest in a box, you won't be disappointed, they look and taste fabulous.
