Monday has been rescheduled for Tuesday

Due to the holiday and family, I will be posting today’s post tomorrow.

Please enjoy this illustration from The Thirteen Clocks by James Thurber, illustrations by Marc Simont. I particularly like how the duke’s spy, Hark, manages to look plausibly evil while also being kindly.

It has come to my attention that a later edition used illustrations by Ronald Searle, which is just an appallingly bad idea:

Searle's illustration from 'The 13 Clocks' by James Thurber.
