Paul is so delighted with his logbooks - he just kept saying Wow! Wow! Wow! And he also kept saying "these are even better than I hoped". So all in all, he is totally over the moon with them, and keeps picking them up and looking at them. The scent of leather is wafting around the room as I write!! I've actually filmed him opening the logbooks and will be sending the video to his parents in New Zealand, to give them a flavour of his joy and pleasure in his presents. The container etc is truly stunning also. A worthy setting for such beautiful works of art. I love the way you've created the lower aperture for the licenses and used the airway plotting chart maps too.
Thank you so very much from both of us - not just for the wonderful works of art you have made, but also for making the commissioning process so enjoyable and inclusive. It's been a total pleasure. Thank you for the illustrated narrative also. It's just wonderful and helps to explain all the photos that you've kindly sent me. I've now sent it to all the friends and family who contributed to Paul’s 60th present. Our friends here in Norwich have been marveling at the complex process required.
I'm so delighted with everything you've done Andrew. I know Paul is too. It's been a really lovely inclusive experience working with you. Just hope doing the container hasn't given you too many grey hairs, I can see what a challenge it must have been. All the very best and thank you so so much once again. A complete triumph!!!!!
