      I received my copy of the book today. I absolutely love it! It brought me back to the days of scratch n' sniff stickers. Also, having left NY almost 2 years ago, it was a fun way to "revisit" the city.

      That's great news Amber! I actually have experience clearing permissions for selections in books and know how frustrating it can be to get permissions sometimes. I'm glad the book printing is back on track.
