Well, sort of.
While I was up in Leeds at Thought Bubble I spent a little time in the Central Library poking around their microfilm collection. I say poking around because really I just opened a drawer on a staircase because it had a sticker on it labelled secret. Turned out it held a collection of bird illustrations by a Reverend and a book on Norwegian natural history. Not exactly what you’d call confidential but two of my favourite ever subjects nonetheless.
Just look at the loon:
So, yes. Somewhere between an icy landscape on the Hurtigruten and the wilderness of the Hebrides comes ‘The Blushing Scot’, a tale about a man, a woman and an ornothological index.
More details to follow soon.
