Well, I won't be entering the competition ! I know next to nothing about design. I hope other people will have a go. NLM shouls soon be posting more details of what exactly is required.

However, I was much taken by the title of Father's post : "Usus Antiquior" - You can help."

Yes, indeed. If all goes well, the first issue of "Usus Antiquior" will be published in January 2010.

Meanwhile, there is the hard work, and the cost, of getting this enterprise up and running.

How can people help at this stage ? Go the "Usus Antiquior" website and register your interest, without obligation, there. Send a donation, if you can afford it, to the Society of St. Catherine of Siena (Usus Antiquior Fund).

And spread the word ! Tell everyone about it !
