Just got a bunch of copies of The Cavalier Mr. Thompson, OR SAM HILL--the french edition in the mail today! Again, it blows the U.S. version out of the water (except for the cover designs--sorry, I like mine better). It's a gorgeous hardcover book with white embossed lettering along the spine...and the lovely matte surface paper stock inside is exactly what I wanted for The Cavalier U.S. version, but turned out to be more costly. It's bigger than the U.S. version too which also had me scratching my beard as well. All in all, a beautiful job! Thanks to Serge Ewenczyk, Héléne Duhamel and everyone at Editions Ca Ét La!
