I don't know if you're the kind of person who gravitates towards bookstalls at markets and car-boot sales. If you are, imagine standing at one of these stalls and, under the Mills and Boon and endless Agatha Christie paperbacks, discovering an ancient, crackling leather-bound book, the size of a paving slab - a Natural History of some long-forgotten corner of Greece or Israel or Persia - and turning the pages to find a plate, meticulously drawn by some naturalist whose name is lost in time, showing a hippogriff resting on a bare plateau, wings slightly raised to test the wind, and imagine wondering... did he see it with his own eyes?Pencil on cartridge paper, aged in Serif PhotoPlus.
