I received your Dorothy Knapp book this afternoon. I am absolutely thrilled by it. It’s gorgeous! It is the most stunning cover book I have ever seen. I have spent over an hour skimming through every single page. I really appreciate the human interest information included about Dorothy and her family (and dog). I read the poems and some of the other text, and scanned through all of the cover photos. Everything is top notch. I recognize a number of the covers as being in my collection. I am now excited about going through my Knapp covers and identifying them with your numbering system. I’m thinking that your numbering will end of being the “Bible” for Knapp covers.
Thank you for sending me this superb book. I will certainly treasure it. I will be spending a lot more time carefully reading all the introductory material and, of course, the cover photos. My wife saw your book, and she wants to read about Dorothy and family, and she usually has practically no interest in covers.
I knew you had been a pharmacist, but I did not know you were a professional pastry chef and that you restored fine 18th century furniture. I’m glad to learn that.
I eagerly await your second book!
