Wanted to post this outside the Interesting Item as it is fairly rare I beleive. Seller has some of the three ring binders and portfolios. Included with it as an afterthought it seems is the Quadrille Graph Paper.

Seller has a few other items but none as nice as the Graph Paper.

Yeah, rare enough and even though that copy's missing pages the cover is very presentable, judging by the pic.

I found the Quadrille pad to be quite rare. I have had a specific search on it for years. When I could be arsed to click it I never saw one come up for auction.

I got one in auction many moons ago and picked up another through private sale.

Anyone know which artist did the cover of the Quadrille? There's a little symbol by the bottom right foot that I am not familiar with. Looks kind of like Erol Otus' EO, but not quite; it's more of A with another letter inside it. Doesn't look like a typical Otus work either...Also, I just noticed that it is made by St Regis, so was it an outside artist? Alex Nuckols, perhaps? The symbol could certainly be an "A" with an "n" inside it.

Might be that, can't say from the low-res pictures here. :/ I'll check mine when I go visit my stuff. ::sigh:: It IS obviously an artist joke, tho, modeled after the emblem of engraver Albrecht Durer

Of course I have! :D
One bought back in the late 70s and another more recently.
Am expecting another dozen copies any time soon... :P

(Ian appears to have missed the original punning joke somewhat; but hey, we all got a different sense of humor - even if some are more modularly deleteable than others...).

Never knew that is what a snipe looked like. Also I think the plural of Snipe is Snipe as Snipes in Google brings up Wesley and nothing on the bird.

Heh, heh. :D

But I'd better get back on-topic; y'know the quadrille... ;)

Does anyone know what the sheet count is for the stated-incomplete copy currently up for sale? I'm far from convinced that the number is fixed; as with similar period GW releases.

Ok. Maybe I should have taken the time to stretch the beek a bit in PSP.

$68; not bad...
