Perhaps our most sensuous volume yet, this third offering in our selected essays series is positively bursting with goodness, including chocolate highs, scorbutic visions, wonky badgers, sexy flora, deadly fogs, mathematical fish, coloured cubes of hyperspace, a very naughty Aristotle, and pianos comprised of yelping cats.

Adorned with illustrations from the likes of Ernst Haeckel, J. J. Grandville, Gustave Doré, and William Hogarth, the book is a full-colour visual feast, all printed on sumptuous 70lb paper.
