    I have a spare Glasgow zoo sign which probably originally came from Edinburgh zoo in the 1950s. 'Barbary dove' so not very exciting. My collection of zoo ephemera is currently in storage but would you be interested in buying it in the new year?

    Will do – as soon as I get my stuff out of storage. I did just get a couple of gorilla signs from Berlin Zoo. I could spare one of those.

    Artis Amsterdam is selling signs for about 40 euros per piece in their gift shop, if you could get anybody to buy you one ;)
