Something for the Archives

Spotting early on that the Scarecrow Weekend was going to be a resounding success I spent a fair bit of time photographing the scarecrows for posterity.

I have now produced a 20 page full colour booklet that includes at least one photograph of every scarecrow that I could find.  The cost of printing them myself is horrendous (they would come out at 10 each), but Prontaprint in Stratford can produce them for something a good deal more reasonable.

I am therefore seeking orders for this booklet, and the number of orders I get will determine the price!  If only 10 people order then the price will be 5, falling to 3.50 if 20 of you want a copy and 3 if I can drum up sales of 30.

3 is little more than the price of a pint of beer, and considerably less than a packet of fags, so surely some of you out there are interested.

On the other hand, for those with computers and/or DVD players, I can offer a VideoCD which will display the same images either on your computer screen or television set.  These are on offer at 1 each, surely the snip of the year.

If you are interested, please contact me either by a note through the door at Karibu, by 'phone on 01295680286 or email to news-editor @ oxhill.org.uk.  I shall close the order file at midnight on Friday 22 July and then set about producing the appropriate number of copies for delivery and, at that stage only, asking for payment!  Until then the price of a booklet will not be known.
