    I don't know how you give them up. If I had such a beautiful book in my hands, it would have to pried out. You are a good man, Jerome!

    Just when you think there can't be any unique ways to do a special one-off left, something like this comes along. Whoever came up with the concept for the collection and the design elements, wow, great job (and "wow, great job" doesn't really do it justice).
    Things change fast.
