Wales Antiques 2009 – 2010 Guide Now Online

The last couple of months I have been occupied with the production of the Wales Antiques Guide.  Chasing customers, checking copy, generating invoices, licking envelopes and liasing with the designer and the printer.

And now it is at Gomer tucked up in it’s bed ready for the presses to roll. After the administrations of the guillotine, the folders, the staplers and the packers it will be on its way to my front door in one of their little blue and white vans. After that it’s delivery to the various businesses therein as well as to the Tourist Information Offices and the other various outlets who help distribute this free guide.

However, since we have been publishing to the web,  my most satsifying task is the updating of the web pages. Adding the new, removing the expired, and putting up the new map. It’s satisfying I think because it’s the last job, the underlining that says the year has turned.  Anyway here it is. It may have a few typos to weed out yet but I hope you find something of interest. And let me know what you think…

This is the blog of Paul Williams, Ceredigion resident since 1970. I am an English and Philosphy graduate of what was once known as St David's University College, at Lampeter. I played bass in Dyfed's first punk band, and living in Llandewi Brefi, had a grandstand view of Operation Julie. Eventually, after 2 years playing bass in Brighton's 256th punk band, I returned to Wales to deal in books and then antiques. I've trained and worked as a counsellor, I am a photographer, blog and web designer and I publish the annual Wales Antiques Guide. I am married and a father of one. Apart from my family, my interests include books, maps, Nikon, Yashica and Mamiya film cameras, British Culture 1935 - 1965, Poole pottery, Welsh textiles, and Poster art. My favourite movies include anything by Pressburger and Powell favourite music includes Gene Clark, Gram Parsons, and anything form San Francisco 1965-1970. I am a late convert to 'Kraut Rock'.
