Possibly it was because Fraser Books and the author are both based in Masterton. In fact, Fraser Books has quietly published nearly 100 books since its first bestseller,
Sonja Davies’ Bread & Roses in 1984, and one of its principals has been publishing books for nearly 40 years. Certainly, modern technology allows short runs to be produced more economically,but has nothing to do with how well a book is shaped, edited and designed.
