Three Cheers for Two Years of ABDA
Various ABDA members have sent in birthday greetings.
There’s cause for hearty celebration
Because book designers are now in association
Nearly one hundred members strong
It really hasn’t taken long
Two years precisely by my calculation
Our website is quite a beautiful thing
And an employee Claire who makes it all hum and sing
We confer and compare
We support each other and care
And best of all we soak our cucumber in gin
So here’s to ABDA and all who help make it legit
To our sponsors and members for all you commit
The landscape has changed
We are no more estranged
Happy birthday ABDA, here’s cheers to it.
