Well this gorgeous book landed in the shop last week and is selling like hotcakes. Why? Because it is very gorgeous and fabulously interesting. Characters (why is it so hard for me to spell that word?) is a fabulous look at signage and typography in and around Melbourne, including the gorgeous Sun Theatre sign pre restoration. Don't trust the index on this one it is actually on page 190. We have an added interest here at the Sun because one of Yarraville's own characters and our long time customer, sometimes handy man and pal Warren Kirk has photographs featured in the book, very exciting.
Don't miss Warren's Photograph of the man with his Jesus trolleys just past the index, the lucky last one in the book. Saturday saw The Help which was great and just like when I read the book, I cried and ate chocolate, also made an asparagus risotto from Jamie Oliver it was a really excellent recipe and tasted like Spring.
