40th Anniversary Toast Book Society Lapel Pin Musings From an Overturned Beehive
The Bimetallic Question's
The Toast Book, curated by Karl Raudsepp, contains a selection of the toasts offered at the Bimetallic Question's bi-monthly meetings — five are offered each meeting: The Master, Dr. Watson, The Woman, Mrs. Hudson and The Society.
Sometimes the toasts reference earlier Sherlockian writings or research, but they always represent original ideas and material culled from the fertile and singular minds of our members. They range from the serious and scholarly to the playful and humourous.
A handful of copies are still available from the editor. Contact him directly at email@example.com
