prospero is correct :D I paid £0.01 (plus postage) for my copy two years ago when I joined the FF. In some areas it is a little dated but mostly it's well worth the read.

I've just passed my copy on to another member who initially thought I was being overly generous :giggle: but truth will out :(

When it first came out I bought 10 copies of Pete Bingham's book and gave them away to distributors/framers in developing countries.

Fond memories of Cambodia - just 8 framers and only 1 Logan mat cutter in the country. A country with no distributors so framers had to import supplies, mostly from Thailand.

The Logan wasn't used because the framer couldn't understand the instruction " Always use a slip mount" :head:
I showed him how to cut a mount using a slip mount. and he was totally blown away. Small things like this made my day!

I established a distributor in Cambodia so framers didn't have to drive the 10 hours to Bangkok to get supplies.
I've seen framers in Asia dismantling old bicycle chains to recycle parts as a one piece D ring.

You UK framers are so lucky - plentry of distributors - loads of choice - next day delievery to your door, 2 Framers Forums, Art & Framing Today, F.A.T.G. Wessex Road shows etc etc to name just a few benefits to being in UK. :clap:
I have visited framers in 83 countries - no two are the same.

Luôn sử dụng giá treo để có được cạnh bevel đẹp :giggle:


That's how Logan's sticker looked to someone who doesn't read English :head:

Prospero,

I'm sure Pete Bingham would endorse your advice :giggle:
