Whew! Thank you. I was starting to have withdrawal symptoms!
Awesomeness of the Troas is duly noted, but I especially like the reverse on the Volusian. Excellent detail, very interesting type.

Steve P's enthusiasm should be bottled,  or at least be a brunch option.
Why any ambitious office holder would associate with a rat is mystifying at best.
