NOTE: Ok, your guess is as good as mine. Somehow, this book is different than all the other “grid” books but I can’t tell you how. That is a mystery that you should intrepidly solve, after getting this book. I will throw in an actual magnifying glass, in fact, to the lucky winner who takes it home, for reals. A magnifying glass. Just try and resist that.
According to Amazon, this book retails for $45.00— $23 more than what I’m asking — and ranks a sort of Sisyphean 1,124,455 in sales.
