I just enjoy books, AR's hardbound versions in particular. I do like to imagine the circumstances under which they were written printed and delivered - those printed during WW2 in particular.
I have a sense of wonderment of how these WW2 books were produced, paper and printing ink were rationed - how did they get enough paper etc? What sort of priority was given to the delivery of the books from the printers to the binders - by train presumably? Plus many other questions.
There are also items that I notice by chance e.g. with the minutes of the last AGM just circulated - why did the meeting take over 12 hours if the start and finish times are to be believed?
I am probably only 1 in 1000 TARS (assuming that there are less than 1000 TARS!) who is interested in this and other topics. I post items occasionally and get no response which confirms this view. Other postings provide a stream of helpful and informative responses.
Always in the back of my mind is that interest in AR and his works is a hobby and I never get upset about a lack of response or any comment made.
