It's been awhile since I've posted about the wine foils I've been working on, but I'm really committed to getting 26 of them together and creating an ABC book. I have no idea how I'll go about trying to publish it, or what the format will be... Should there be a rhyme, maybe even a limerick, associated with each? Is this for grownups or children or both?
