Cool Email of the Week

Earlier this week, I received an email from James Nunn.  The subject of the email was “Feedback: our names” and I'm thinking to myself, hmmm… more viagra adverts (coming through my feedback tool on my website).  I was surprised to open the email and find this:

Dear James,

Hi. This is a bit cheeky but I was wondering if you would do me a huge favour. could you put a link or a note on your site to my site? I am an illustrator and designer and lately I've had a lot of interest from the states and it crossed my mind that they'd have to guess what my web address was since I have only just started putting my url on the books I design. Predictably this happened after I did the book that many americans now own: Eats Shoots and Leaves.

If you don't want to or don't think it's appropriate then don't worry, really. You seem to have a lot on your plate right now anyway so I do wish you all the best with the lawsuit etc. whatever you decide you seem like a nice guy, which is always a bonus in a namesake!

At any rate I hope you enjoy the site

very best wishes


How cool. A namesake! So I did as I was asked, and there on my front page of my webpage is a link to “The Other James Nunn.” What makes this even more incredible is that I actually own that book, and it's been on my reading list for a few months now.  Now I have more reason to read it, if only to admire the pictures!
