I am writing to ask you to pass on my sincere thanks to everyone concerned in my recent order of 7 photographs from the around bournemouth book. the package arrived a few days ago and i couldn't be more thrilled with it! the most important thing was how beautifully it was wrapped and it arrived in perfect condition. when i unwrapped the photographs i was so delighted with them and kept looking at them over and over again. thank you for providing such wonderful photographs - i can't wait to give them to my family.
