    How's the book so far? Is it well-written and engrossing? I just bought five titles for my Kindle yesterday and am pulling on the reins, hahaha. But this one might be too tempting. (I just remembered: free sample.)

    Thanks for the link!

    As for the book in the video... I'm not an expert, but I have heard of art forgeries plenty of times to entertain doubts. I wouldn't mind having a forgery, hahaha, cos... cool book! If it's a forgery, someone went to a looooooot of trouble. That's got to be worth something. *Smiley*

    I'm not done with the book yet but so far it's fascinating and I would recommend it. I'm 99% sure it was fellow-fpgeek, and dear friend, Kudzu who sent it to me ages ago....when I had some suspicion that a person purchasing old paper from my Etsy store might have wanted to..........er.......create something old looking.

    Yes, JBB, that was me. Glad you find it as fascinating as I did.
