This sailed from halfway around the world. I expected cardboard boxes, but instead, it came packed up in a wood crate, and weighing a ton. Using a Makita, I unscrewed nearly 20 screws just to take the top off of it. Inside it protected a delicate book by Clare Rojas. A children's book, it's not thick, but it contains a story with Clare's art work next to it. It's a higher end publication, that's rich and awesome. I'm glad we get to distribute it to the finer stores everywhere. When I saw that box, I thought, "damn, Japan packaging." But I guess they do it in some places in Europe too. It's a small treasure.
