Sorry about the delay in responding! Yours truly fell the day before New
Year's eve while shoveling snow off the back stairs and broke a rib. I've
been home and unable to access my work account. Anyone have any suggestions
for healing broken bones quickly? Or for pain management without drugs
since I seem to have reactions to most of the standard ones???
Anyhow, my new soap book is called _The Complete Soapmaker_ by Norma Coney,
and it came as a book and a kit. The publisher's info on the book is
Sterling Publishers, c1996, ISBN: 0-8069-4869-8, and the list price is
$14.95. For a beginner it seems to be really good and explains in detail
with wonderful pictures and drawings. I don't think that it would be of
much value other than as a basic beginning book, and I believe it's intended
audience is that of a precoscious (SP?) child or young adult.
dThe other two books, just in case anyone is interested, are:
_Food an authoritative and visual history and dictionary of the foods of the
world_ by Waverley Root, Smithmark Publishers, c1980, ISBN: 07651-9791-X.
_Italian painting_ by Keith Christiansen, Hugh Lauter Levin Associates
Inc./Beaux Arts Editions, c1992, ISBN: 0-88363-971-8.
Sorry I don't have prices for those, but they were gifts and the prices were
