The illustrations though...the illustrations are by C.E. Millard, there is not much about him on the net. But the illustrations turn line into an sinuous organic thing, particularly remarkable with his hand-lettered type - helpful in supporting an argument that words are living things. Below is an illustration that has stayed with me, and is the source of both my singing bird and flower-breathing dragon illustrations. Now you know - This artist is a magpie with borrowed diamonds!
