Usually wrong.
Bill is an exceptional human being. And I'd say that even if he had never published a word of mine. He's also an exceptional book designer and printer. All around nice guy, too.

The man's all the best ways. I'm honored to call him a friend. And BOTTLE OF SMOKE...designing & printing with him was a highlight of 2007. I can't wait to drink a few more beers, cook him some papitas, & print somethign terrific again!

Congratulations to you and yours on the wonderful daughter.

And thanks to you specifically for the wonderful pressing. My Father Luke book is a treasure (thanks to Father Luke as well!).

Oh shit, I laughed so hard at this that Knob Creek came out of my nose, and that hurts like a motherfucker, I freely admit.

Bill, congratulations to you and the missus and the sibs. You are a prince amongst thieves and a true gentleman, and any children of yours can only be an asset to this world.
