of the book arrived in the mail. The book is due to be published on December 10th.
It’s the first time I’ve seen the completed book. Yes! It was exciting.
I want to tell you that there IS a photo of our beloved Crab Cottage in the book. Surprisingly, a vintage photo wasn’t easy to find….Thank you, photographer Ed Davis.
One of the fun things you might not know about–and that I present in the Princeton book–….is that a group of colorful beatniks, artists, painters, writers (who had to leave San Francisco–they were even too beatnik-ish for the City!) lived & worked in what was locally called “The Abalone Factory.”
Tracking them down was most satisfying. You’ll see when you look at the book.
I’ll tell you more later.
P.S. I love the cover of the book–the photo was shot in front of Hazel’s Seafoods (now Barbara’s Fishtrap…Oh, yeah, there’s a wonderful photo of Paul & Barbara in the book, too!)
