"Act now while the supply lasts, and you can buy a rare facsimile of an
11th-century, illuminated German manuscript for only $16,425. After
March 15, the price will rise to $19,205. This is what the publisher
has told prospective German buyers interested in acquiring a 410-page,
gilded copy of a pericope."
Some people change when they see the light, others when they feel the heat. -Caroline Schoeder
