Production on the Monty Wedd book Bold Ben Hall received a temporary set-back a couple of weeks ago, when difficulty arose when trying to source a suitable flat bed scanner. You see, the project is being worked from Monty's original artwork, with pages measuring up to 38 cm x 50 cm. But, now that we have reached a solution, it is all steam ahead! Thanks, Rosie: you've given yourself some work in the days ahead!
Just arrived this morning! Some photos that we are going to use for the cover. Here's one. It's the original Navy Colt Holster taken from Ben Hall’s body when he was shot in 1865. That's the degree of authenticity being brought to this project! Thanks, Alan for the photographs!
