Editorial Reviews

Sailing
A keeper well after the year is over and done.
WaterCraft
Spectre] is able to assemble an impressively eclectic mix of quotations on whatever nautical topic he has chosen for the left-hand page and also knows exactly where to go in his vast collection to find an arcane yet apposite event or anniversary to celebrate for each of the seven days shown on the right-hand page and can keep on doing that a further 358 times. No wonder The Mariner s Book of Days seems to have reached the status of a minor cult.
