Sold out of Nestor Notabilis: a moment for nostalgia

One of the more curious of our early releases, Nestor Notabilis' I know someone who knows someone who knows Kevin Roberts quite well has just sold out. We produced 200 copies in 2007 and 100 more in 2008, but they have now all sold. Perhaps, when producing new books next year we will add another 20 to our stocks.

There were two substantial reviews: one from Salient, and one in the NBR. Who else could bring these two editorial titans together? Who else indeed?

And so this is how nostalgia looks: the brittleness of a back catalogue, flakes of paper yellowed and dried by the sun into something a toddler might mistake for filo pastry.
