On another note, cartoonist Ben Towle and friends are at it with another really cool alphabet project. The first time was an animal alphabet and this time it's imaginary beasts. I'm going to try and take part when I can this time. I pilfered my much loved copy of Katherine Briggs' Encyclopedia of Fairies for ideas.
Unbelievably I'm still a bit sick, which may mean infrequent breaks to watch The Muppets Take Manhattan on Netflix. Henson's Storyteller is on there too, if you've never seen it you really must, it's my all time favorite piece of television. The brilliant Dark Crystal is there too.
