“Thank you very much for ... the guidebook text, which we have all thoroughly enjoyed reading. We like the tone and style you have set. We feel it responds brilliantly to our brief and we all found things in it that we didn't know about Mancroft and enjoyed the stories you had drawn out.

Thanks for all your wonderful work on this, we really appreciate it.”
