Hello Fate--

That book is such a classic. What a terrific way to educate and entertain at the same time.

Thanx for the comment!

What a beautiful bit of inking. It's in the classic American style, fluid, muscular, runs the full gamut of values with ever getting fussy. the rendering of the stone beneath the gryphon is the one, minor flaw for me, although that too is a classic example of American fast hatching.

A really good inker such as Stout makes you feel the easy motion of the hand/nib and the liquid tension of the ink moving between nib & paper.

Thanks! More, please!
