Thanks for the link - I'm glad you like the engraving! Lots more on my Web site of course.

To people who collect engravings sold as individual prints, just remember that in most cases some unscrupulous book dealer has ripped apart a book, taken out the plates to sell, and sometimes just thrown away the rest of the book.

I try and buy books that are already damaged, so that when I scan them (usually at 2400dpi) and wreck the binding, at least the book is being kept together.
