Vervain Oil was used to locate drowned bodies under the belief it would attract eels to the spot in the stream where the body lay.

Here’s a few new illo’s.

First up, a loom machine.  I discovered an entire room of these in the Bonington building of Nottingham Trent University, they’re absolutely fascinating to look at.

Second, Scarthin Books in Cromford, Derbyshire.  The best place for books (plus a vegan/veggie cafe on the top floor!). https://twitter.com/scarthinbooks
