Now isn't that a coincidence!! As some of you know I work in a specialist Library in London. Have done for 27 years. One of my duties involves labelling  new additions to our collections. Over the years I must have handled/labelled thousands of volumes from brand new publications to fragile 16th century manuscripts but in all that time I have never come across a book with a hidden picture on the edge of it's pages, invisible unless held the right way. Until last Monday. This particular volume had a sea-faring  image. A huge ship in full sail, big waves, billowing clouds, all of which  disappear when the book is closed. I thought it was amazing. And now you've posted this article....

I say, Joe it's jolly frightening out here.
Nonsense dear boy, you should be more like me.
But look at you! You're shaking all over!
Shaking? You silly goose! I'm just doing the Watusi

We do have a rather splendid 'Erotica' section (availble to view by appointment)
