I can’t find JNaz’s original post about Blackstock. If I could, I’d post this there. I have in my hands from the library this collection of GLB’s drawings of collections of all sorts of animate and inanimate objects. It’s delightful to look at! And inside the front and back covers are his beautifully handwritten recipes for “Special Exotic Soups” like Cream of Pineapple Soup.
I want to share one of the descriptions below one of his drawings in the “MONSTERS OF THE DEEP” collection, which I especially love: “The extremely fierce, mean, combative and hideous green moray eel of the tropical Atlantic This 6-foot figure gives big germy & dangerous bites to anyone or anything it attacks” Got his point across, yes?
His collections are grouped into these main categories, which cover a lot of ground:
OUR FAMOUS BIRDS
FISH & THE LIKE
INSECTS & ARACHNIDS
BOATING & SEAMANSHIP
THE THINGS TO WEAR
THE LAST BUT NOT LEAST
I hope you can see this book some day!
