Thanks again for all your replies.
I did meet Craig Richards and can vouch for his niceness. My wife and I were in the Mountain Equipment Co-op in Calgary where I noticed some greeting cards with pretty much the best B&W reproductions I'd ever seen. I tracked him down at the museum in Canmore and had a good long chat with him about his printing methods and where he got the cards made. I was mightily impressed with his work.
I did ask about this sort of thing a long time ago in the advertisers forum, but got no response from Kerry.
I'll be gazing at my navel for quite a while over this purchase...
