It's time for a little stretch, dark chocolate Lindt bunnies, and the good corner of the couch where one can sit and read for hours.
I also picked up Drawing Down the Moon. It's a collection of art by Charles Vess, one of my favourite fairy tale illustrators. Vess runs through his influences and project selection processes. There's a great section on his collaboration with Gaiman on Stardust. I love the scenes with the flying ships. In an interview, Gaiman describes the process: "A lot of the story was actually pushed into existence by me going, ‘Wouldn’t it be fun to see Charles drawing so-and-so?’ And occasionally he’d draw something and I’d go, ‘That’s good. I’m going to bring that back.’"
