    "Déesse" Roland Barthes, 'Mythologies', 1957

    The Déesse has all the characteristics of one of those objects fallen from another universe that fed the mania for novelty in the eighteenth century and a similar mania expressed by modern science fiction: the Déesse is first and foremost the new Nautilus.

    Wonderful. Congratulations are in order to you, MBerry.

    Is the latest edition updated?

    Hahahahhaha,
    Chris, is having a belated April fool gag. But I think I should organise one of those dust covers Chris, I leant mine to a friend and it came back with a big slice right through the middle of the cover. Very nice reproduction.

    Yes, time rich and dollar poor, I was feeling a little naughty. . .

    I had a copy with torn cover and set to, to make a replacement, in doing that I thought "hey I can use any pics I like. . ." Font matched and all text on the cover notes re-set. . . though I could add credits for the new pics.





    Sorry for the tease guys, I'm taking orders for custom dust covers. . .

    With prices like this seller is asking, hang in for a while and you may be able to retire the wife. . .

    ... and the kids will have to be sold for scientific experiments.

    The original covers tend to mark very easily. A new cover would dress up a scruffy copy.

    I'd be quite happy with a scruffy copy to help with the safari, just can't afford to pay the prices being asked. cheers Dave

    keep an eye out on ebay, despite the stupid prices that are often asked, reasonably priced copies do come up. In the meantime get yourself a copy of Charles Vyse "Goddess" from Amazon, much better book. And I think it's only $25.00 In 10 years time people will no doubt be asking crazy money for it.

    Interesting concept, print on demand and printed locally anywhere in the world. . .

    Hello, don't forget "Goddess" is based on his 2nd (I think) nose BVH. I have bought it, took about 10 days to be printed and sent.

    He does give sources for some of the unobtanium. From his recommendation, I've ordered some camshaft bearings (Type 2F Toyota Landcruiser) from the US of A, lets hope they fit.

    My wife almost got the sack when she picked up my copy of Reynolds book to lean on to write a shopping list!

    That's Dutch. At least the pics and the numbers are the same. That's worth something.

    Really, it's a completely different book to the "Reynolds Guide" which is a brilliant reference for any DS enthusiast and filled with really good photography that will be a source of inspiration for years to come. But the Charles Vyse book is the first book I have come across that covers a good deal of the mechanical and technical wonders of the DS and was written in English, as opposed to being translated from French. It's not perfect, but a very good addition to the workshop manuals.

    I just got the Vyse book through the Lulu website (print on demand). Great accessible read.

    Also worth reading Why Citroen by Chassin, published in the 1970's.
    There's something useful in there for most Traction and DS owners.

    Received my personalised dust cover for the 'Restorers Guide' today. It's fantastic, Chris has done a brilliant job, I can't believe how good it is. It's far superior to the original. This cover will outlast the book itself. What a great idea! Order with confidence.

    Thanks for your kind words Michael, which carry weight coming from someone in the industry. . .

    The covers shown are before minor changes and lamination, the result is a dust cover to protect your existing dust cover guaranteed to repel LHS, LHM, Coffee or your favourite Red.

    I'm thinking I might negatively gear a second copy of this book, better investment than housing and if you get in quick will still qualify

    Cheers
