My castle, my books.

1897 life study drawing by E.H. Shepard from Gurney's Journey

I've got a gifted copy of The Wind in the Willows lingering from high school.  High time I read it. Did you know that E.H. Shepard, illustrator of both The Wind in the Willows and Winnie the Pooh, was married to Mary Shepard, illustrator of the PL Travers' Mary Poppins?  I did not, know I do.
