Update #8

Dictionary sightings


Good news in that Dictionary stories have been spotted in the UK, Berlin and Chicago. That means international mail is what I was hoping it should be! If you haven't received yours yet please leave it till the end of the week and we will see from there..

I also received a great mail from Daniel Zarick and his project URBAN:READING and if you have five minutes take a look and post away!

I have also had a few requests about obtaining more Dictionaries before the Xmas and I am sure that is possible. I might need to add extra for next day delivery but email me here and I will have more details

      I just received mine yesterday in Chicago and it's stunning. Even the packaging was fun. I'll post some photos to Flickr and share.
