lovely surprise from Alasdair Gray

I had a lovely surprise when I went to collect Alasdair's Gray's new hardback Old Men in Love on Thursday night at Kino.

Alasdair wrote his name in biro on the blue front fly leaf. He must have pressed the pen nip down very hard. The page beneath has a clear imprint of his signature.

Incidentally, the book is bound and printed in Italy by L.E.G.O., who might be the same Legoprint, who also does Granta's book magazines: very nice, smooth, heavy paper.
