Silhouette Collectors Club

There is a very interesting, and a very informative, as well, "club" across the Atlantic. The writer/publisher is one knowledgeable researcher on the subject of British silhouettes. Each quarter, she sends a club bulletin packed with new information on silhouettes. I understand that she does not make a use of the internet nor does she have an access to a computer. Everything is done the "old-fashioned-way."She would take photos of silhouettes; make enough duplicates for each member of the club, and cut-and-paste the same onto each article contained in the bulletin! So each issue is filled with clear, actual photos on the subject. She also covers the auction routes (no internet auctions), providing readers with "prices realized," comments on rarity, condition and the like.

The cost of a year's subscription, four issues of the bulletin, is a nominal twelve pounds or about twenty us dollars within UK. Since airmail postage overseas is quite costly, as common courtesy, it is a good idea to remit double the required amount.....$40 US.

Update 1/23...Just rec'd the latest edition and she is now using a word processor. The newest edition has a "clean look" but I thought typewritten pages were nostalgic and charming.
