  1. Hey, it’s Justin.

    Is this Ex Libris competition still on, or have they taken the prints and run?

    The reason I ask is that the host website doesn’t seem to be active anymore. I do have saved copies of the information and entry forms, plus it is accessible by Google cache.

    Thank you,
