Errata ...


...a catalogue of errors!

Whist we did our best to eliminate mistakes in the Second Edition of our catalogue regrettably we did not eliminate them all, despite our best efforts. 

I am indebted to Peter Bracey who has reviewed the second edition and identified a number of spelling, typographical and reference mistakes that we have noted for future editions. For the pedants amongst us, I list below Peter's full catalogue of errors and corrections identified to date.  If you have spotted any others please do let me know graham@smilers-info.com 

I have to put by hand up and admit to a bewildering omission on my part in the listing of Themed Sheets in Section 5. For some inexplicable reason unknown to me somehow in the compilation of this work I omitted to include a whole page of Themed Sheet listings. Fortunately this page was included in the First Edition so at least if you bought the First Edition you will have this to hand. For those that did not buy the first edition I now provide the whole section as a .pdf file download, covering all sheets TS-001 to TS-399

Download the revised listing of Themed Sheets - updated to July 2010

In the corrections listing that follows: Page references to Section 5 relate to the published version although these will have changed from page 5-17 onwards as a result of the insertion of the missing page 5-17 covering sheets TS-061 to TS-090. To avoid confusion the revised page reference is also included in brackets.
