Library budget request

Postby Jimmy Bastard » Tue May 29, 2007 2:50 pm

I'm going to start a Letter Writing Club,
just a mellow informal addition to a Sunday afternoon.
a sensible time to collect your thoughts from the week
to encourage people to write handwritten letters
it's not intended to be like a writer's group where you discuss each others work
more, just setting a time and place where people can indulge this lost hobby.
my question is can I be extended a modest budget
I would like to provide envelopes, paper, stamps
also a few books of Collected Letters of etc.
anyone like? anyone object? anyone want to join?
anyone?

you could probably get a few quid from publishing and lib... maybe with a goal to coallate the best of writer's club letters. also sounds feasabily like a crosss tween a workshop... kind of.

Sounds cool. I might be interested.

I've had it with you. If I had an image of a laser gun I would absolutely position it right here in my hand...
Ha! I have a real laser absolutely positioned in my hand!

This sounds very worthwhile. I'd like to come next time I've got a spare Sunday afternoon...

We have loads of envelopes already in the office, no?
Money for stamps: no problem.
Paper would ideally be reclaimed from the mounds of stuff that gets wasted in the office. But if special letter writing paper needed to be bought, I reckon it would be ok.

I occasionally get these "alerts" from Amnesty International about people in distant parts of the world who are being treated in an ungentlemanly fashion. They ask for letters to be sent. I could bring those in for the club, if anyone would like to make use of them.

There's a summer sale at Pickering's on Buccleuch street.
It's one of the cheaper second hand stores about.
Can I pick up any 'Collected Letters' of whomever?
Maybe three books, doubt if the price would topple a tenner.

Also on a separate note,
other additions to the library.

I note that a favourite blog haunt of mine has opened up a zine shop section.
http://www.uncarved.org/shop/

And is selling such like

Stewart Home - Baudrillard & The Psychogeograhy of Nudism £3.75

"25 Tall Tales of sexual impropriety with seventeen year old girls, decadent nuns and bread dolls taken directly from the pages of both spicy art publications and the most aromatic sections of the style press appended with instructions on how to hang old bread bags from the back pockets of your levis in order to signal your carnal desires to the gingerbread men who frequent the world's most swinging bakeries and hottest 24-hour bagel shops."

Personally I'd buy the whole shop.
