  1. Hi Everyone hope you are keeping safe and well do you have an online shop or take orders over the phone Keep up the great work Drew

    1. Yes all sold Allan I’m afraid; will look out for a Kilberry of the old size for you but you might like to invest in the new A4 version from the PS with members’ discount! Only £22.50 last time I looked. RW

      1. With my old eyes the big book is an attraction….if you come across one please tell me. Failing that when the spine eventually goes on the current one then I may need to splash out! Awrabest during the crisis…we’re all getting very tech savvy and I’m looking into quality interviews being recorded online. But I need clever guys on the other end of the line!

        1. It’d be worth asking a bookbinder for a repair quote before you go splashing out. If it’s just a spine repair then that shouldn’t be that much. I paid £50 last year to have piob soc volumes bound together, and that’s a lot more work. Bear in mind too, that carrying a shiny new Kilberry book is like wearing a shiny new barbour jacket. You’d have to leave it in the dog basket for at least a month before you would dare be seen in public with it.

          1. Many thanks David and that’ll be considered after ‘lockdown’ has passed. My current book has notations that may not now be considered helpful and a well worn cover and so it should pass your test!
