Serendip [No. 1460 of 2000]

The greatest find of the Hyd Lit Fest: a remaindered copy of Dom Moraes' Serendip at the OUCIP. Made even more special because it was owned by Issac Sequeira.

 The image below - which for some reason I am unable to rotate, though I'd done the rotating before uploading, and if someone can tell me how to fix this, I'll be most grateful - is DM's signature, with a line that says "This special edition is limited to 2000 signed, numbered copies of which this copy is number 1460."

lemunty: thank you! in the interests of not making myself hated universally, i am leaving out my other finds (which are pretty specialised anyway, so maybe not of much interest).

Hm. Yes, I see your point. Bragging about the joys of this year's Bangalore book fair didn't earn me any points.

You mean it was a serendipitous find.

The Obvious Fairy bit me etc etc.

Spacebar,

You could rotate the image in MS paint and save it. See if this helps in retaining the position to horizontal.
