Presies, freebies; books, zines and catalogues: Bologna compressed into 2kgs of paper. Plenty to think about and enjoy and pore over while planning for the next Inis. Better get reading!

Final tour of the fair and city brought a lovely harvest of books and pics, a felt Elizabeth Bennett, the icecream of the decade and a manly night cap and shirt. Ciao Bologna!

Speeding through misty mountains, timber country, pale-looking naked vineyard, bumping into swaying fellow travelers, tuning into the language of Rodari, Munari and Geronimo Stilton, catching a first snow-capped peak... and all this to the sound of music. Only on the train that's taking me towards Milan, there's no Julie Andrews, but a jazz trio invited to celebrate the Torino jazz festival. Which makes me think that one could take books and stories (and puppet shows, Sadie) onto trains. Avanti!

... After a bout of last-minute packing, a lot of rain and a fair bit of running around like a headless duck, i'm off to Bologna via Paris. How hard is the life of the jetsetting author/editor...
(haven't decided yet if i'm going on the digger or with Noddy...)
