Hi Guys, I went to an amazing swanky book launch this week! The book in question was the 'Thank You Book' brought out by the Irish Hospice Foundation. Essentially, it is a rather beautifully jacketed and elaborate notebook done with various coloured pages, all formatted differently. Every fourth or fifth page there is a brief, original comment from a huge range of authors - from Heaney and Friel to Mac Anna and Aesop - all on the theme of gratitude. I think my favourite is Aifric Campbell's 'thank you for quiet company on dark roads'. A most delightful addition to the Christmas gift market.
