- I need to expand on something I said about the Handplagg book, re: that
it is expensive. I had in my head and meant to add that it is also a
terrific bargain. It is in large format - a classic coffee table book
- with gorgeous photography and beautifully printed. And, as a Swedish
friend pointed out, it is published in a very small country in a
language that very few people speak. It is very expensive to print
limited editions like this.

- Me again. I screwed up in my original post, the company that carries
the Handplagg book is NORDIC Fiber Arts NOT Norsk.
