  1. I know the artist

    Hello Mining world

    Thought I should give some information on what you will be looking at when you become an owner of the first volume of The Warr on Mining.
    A hard cover A4 book, 80 Pages’s, 37 illustrations, a three page comic strip on utilisation, a short story on how it all happened, miscellaneous scribbles and free gift in the way of old school miners currency. Yep a sticker.
    Your book will be signed…….yes by me
    Still not sure…
    let’s say it’s been in the planning for 18 months + some, guesstimate 250hours, 30 something 8 hour days, no breaks (like dispatching). Working on a conservative daily rate. You will be getting a book worth around $20.000 for $49.99 and it’s signed, which right now is nothing but imagine down the track. It could be worth a couple bucks or swap it for a coffee. Get the Boss to buy it.
    How about you might have a wonky coffee table that needs to be level, need to raise the computer screen up a tad, build a ramp for the kids toy car track, teach your family members good posture or for the bird cage plus many more.
    Whatever your reason I thank you and thanks for your understanding as I am a first time poster boy ( that’s posts ) more to come.
    Every time I look at the website, I like it that much that I buy a book.

    This book has so many elements of humour and creativity. There are hidden treasures of giggles and inside jokes any mining crew would relate with..
    This is THE “coffee table book” every miners crib should have.
