I am interested in the book you have on display on your website “Symbols of Australia”. Is it still available & how much does it cost?
I also note you have a gathering/display coming up in November 2017, although it does not indicate the location if I wished to come along. Could you please advise,
Yes the book is still available – and you could meet the author at the fair but I will pass your email address in to Mimmo so he can liaise with you directly about buying the book. Mandy, president of ESA.

Bronson, I have asked the author to get in touch with you directly. It is still for sale and is a fantastic book.
