Revolution in the mailbox: A note on "Esq."



Thanks for these clarifications, Agent Bikethru. But now you have opened up the complex question of the difference between a barrister and a solicitor — neither of which we exactly have over here!

And a note to all agents and correspondents, on paper or electrons: I will be traveling for much of the rest of the summer, so please bear with me if I am slow to reply. I'll be in London for the month of July and look forward eagerly to seeing Bikethru and other insurgents. (Save July 24 for a London type-in if you'll be around. Details to follow.)

Revolution in the mailbox: The Olivetti Caper

Agent Bikethru managed to transmit these two messages despite several obstacles: a security issue, continuity problems, and the outrageous price of £1.05 to send a postcard from the UK to the US.




I fully agree about the brilliance of Nizzoli's Lexikon 80 design.



Here's some more information about the Olivetti show in London. I hope to see it when I'm there next month.
