  13. WOW ! ....a large increase here. Up 169.8% ! Worth the extra effort during the bleak winter months in tracking down where stuff is used, such as visiting a bookshop with vague details, and finding/collecting the info for DACS. Quite a good few new publication details added to the DACS database. I claim direct, as Alamy isn't the sole outlet for my work. I'll get the drinks in. Pop round to the pub at 22.05 hours ! 😄
