Now Printed in the Granite State

As of August 2018, Bruno no longer offers books for purchase via Amazon Prime. He was not content with the consistency of Amazon’s printing and shifted production to RC Brayshaw in Warner, NH. Patrons and vendors have commented on the quality of the pages and construction of the new print of Cruising New Hampshire History. Those interested in purchasing a copy can contact one of the vendors listed above. They will provide you with quality customer service, and you will be supporting local, small businesses. Lastly, this is not a slam on Amazon but beware of purchasing the book from Amazon Prime. They do not have permission to reprint the book, and the Amazon website shows a 1-2 month delivery date. One patron had done so and contacted Bruno, who requested he cancel the order and sent him a personalized copy. Thank you all for your business and support.
