    G’day, I just received a copy of this book this morning 30/03/2023 AU time and it’s absolutely unreal. Thank you to Kate for doing what you do, your simply the best and to John for putting this book together, it’s stunning. I’m just sorry I couldn’t get a first edition signed copy. Maybe Kate could come and do a gig in Australia so I can get my copy signed, ( I live in hope lol).

    Have A Good One,
