    Dear PG friends,
    I am very happy to announce that the English version is on the finishing, the book will be available by end of january. The Victoria and Albert museum who red the french version wrote to me :
    Le "Fermoir" has just arrived. It is beautifully produced, and very carefully structured. You have done both makers and historians a huge service. The glossary will be extraordinarily useful. I know how hard you have worked on this, and what resources you have poured into it.
    And it’s a triumph. Many congratulations!"


    Pre-orders will be opened as from monday, access by the link below my signature.
    I promised I will post clasps and pearls, and YES I will because I always keep my promises
    More later

    Now time has come to disclose about the surprise. The translation has been done in 2 times, first an english teacher translated from french to english, Yes 38,000 words, what a job !
    Then my best friend offered me to review the translation to make sure it sounds really good. And my friend is
    "OUR" SHERI, alias " La Corsetiere". Yes Sheri did it !
    You know how brilliant and elegant her wording is. And she did it in a marvelous way, not the slightest accent or inappropriate coma escaped from her checking.
    What a job! And the result is amazing. The checking has now reached the last pages and that's why pre-orders are opened as from monday next. You will be happy to find her name on the book. So am I

    Yes Pattye, when I started sharing photos with PG, I had no ideas where that collection of images would lead me.

    Remember 2008 ?
