Notes:

A decorative woodcut used above a chapter title at the start of the book. The image is a “foliate border” because it contains vines and leaves, but there are also two bird heads and two heads (in profile), bearded and horned, sprouting vines from their mouths. This bearded man in foliage is called a “green man” but, when horned, is said also to represent Curannos, the horned god of nature.
