I ordered this book for a birthday present but wasn’t going to be home for the initial delivery date. I contacted Marianne, who kindly offered to hold off on posting the book until I was home. When the book arrived it was also lovingly wrapped which was an unexpected surprise and much appreciated. Not only a vintage book to enjoy but a lovely experience as well. Thanks again.
