Very good communication

I can't tell about the item because I don't think to open it before a while. BUT… I am happy to say that communication and packaging are VERY good. An example for the profession.

Splendid and highly original book!

It took a few days before the e-book was delivered, but then I received my personal (name imprinted) version in perfect order. Joy to read and just go through the pages. Brings back lots of memories of the good-old '80 and the fun I had with my Acorn computers and games!

Lovingly done

I purchased the original book and the digital update. It just oozes class and is very well put together. I never had a BBC.. so this is weird that I like it so much. Friends had BBCs and Electrons.
