    Well I have one but its over 35 years old! I would suggest buying one. Its a great investment in my opinion, you can buy the hand books, there about 15-20$ last time I checked. Or the large color print books, I believe there around35-50$Ive seen some of the color books and there AMAZING! I am looking into getting one of them. Amazon and ebay always has them for sale.

    Hmm...whats the standard for Black Swedish? I seem to find contradictory information about whether or not their feet should be a solid color. Thanks!
