Comments for The Travelling Bookbinder in Antarctica

Rachel Hazell is a bookbinder, book artist and iceberg fanatic. The opportunity to spend six months in Antarctica - stamping 80,000+ postcards and counting penguins - was just too good to turn down. "I see icebergs as vast sheets of paper."

Sorry, forgot to say that my name's Hereward and I'm just about to open my own bookshop in deepest and darkest Gloucestershire.

Hi Rachel, Love your blog and always keep an eye on it. I've just been memed (no, I didn't know what it was either, I suspect), and am now meming you, if that's ok. It works like this: 1. Pick up the nearest book. 2. Open to page 123 3. Find the fifth sentence. 4. Post the next three sentences. 5. Tag five people, and acknowledge who tagged you. And what I wrote in my blog (, was: The next three sentences of the nearest book with that many pages (the nearest are actually a large pile of very well loved and tatty picture and board books) are: ‘I hope the silly asses won’t be hopping out here to save me’, she thought. ‘That’d spoil everything.’ She went full speed ahead, nearly doubled up on her kitchen knives. The shore didn’t seem to come any nearer.’ Little My is out skating on the breaking ice (in Moominland Midwinter). One of my favourite bits of writing ever comes on the next page, as Moomintroll, trying to rescue Little My (un-necessarily), is about to end up in the freezing water: ‘Too-ticky stood looking on for a while, and then she went inside the bathing-house and put a kettle of water on the stove… “It’s always like this in adventures. To save and be saved. I wish somebody would write a story sometime about the people who warm up the heroes afterwards”. A great, great book, Moominland Midwinter, I totally love it. Rachel, I do hope that you don't mind my meming. Take care, and thanks for a great blog.

Hello Rachel, I was EL on the Mikheev during the last trips in March '08, when you had already left from Port Lockroy. We had some private mail for you on board, which I have now got here at home. Please get in touch with me, so I can send it to you! Best regards, Rolf

I could read your blog all day, but I'm at work so I ought to do some :-) Love and kisses, Elies x x x

Rachie Roo, Oh how beautiful your blog is and what a picture you paint. I do so miss you, but feel so much closer now i've read your inspirational daily entries. It is bleak here by the seaside, (Brighton), as I type up boring research to finish my work at the University. A new studio beckons in the new year in Manchester for 2 months intensive making for my exhibition in March. I can't wait to catch up with you poppet. Please visit me on your return. I have much news to tell re. the elusive one in London!! Warm blanket kisses and hot water bottle hugs, Love you so LLA x
