    Bravo, brilliant, huzzah! Long awaited. I can’t wait to see this in book form, though the PDF is extremely exciting. Kudos to Helen, Andrew and clearly to Emile. How soon can we purchase this book in hard copy on the National Trust website?
    Many thanks, Robert

      It’s a good question, Robert, though I’m afraid I’m no help. I hope soon!
