Untitled digital photograph, 2012

The first photograph was taken in Ashtead, Surrey and the second in the Horniman Museum, Forest Hill, London, UK.

The Horniman has a really interesting collection of objects (a large collection fo musical instruments, including exotic sound-makers such as femur trumpets) from around the world – brought back to Forest Hill by Frederick Horniman (heir to the biggest tea trading business in the world at the time). I like to think of him as a Victorian gentleman in the Phileas Fogg  mould. Anyway, the museum’s great – recently refurbished, with a new improved aquarium and well worth a visit if you’re in the area.

This is Pretty’s illustration for my short story The Manager Who Fell To Earth, originally published by Pulp.Net in 2003. If you’d like to read the story, click on the image.
