I am back in the saddle again, adjusting the preface and the first chapter (well, for 'adjusting' read 'substantially rewriting'). I have stumbled across a racy section of Nights at the Circus, featuring Fevvers and the Grand Duke. The latter is seducing the former and certain transgressions take place (Oooeerr missus - or for reference p.192).
Under the cut, is the amazing artwork of Rachel Taylor, who reimagines Fevvers' image with astonishing imagination. Fevvers as a gloriously meaty Venus - fantastic. If she ever did a cartoon book of Nights at the Circus, I would happily get a copy.
