makes me want to go to the beach – so beautiful

I wonder how long it took her to put it together. I love type and font Dave, thank you for posting these. They are marvelous. Hey, is the book hard to find?

Yea, I’m not sure if I’d ever be able to find pebbles like these.

I just did a google search Milena, but I couldn’t find a copy. You might want to contact the publisher (druk editions) directly.
