It is a lovely book, the size of a standard hardback with an embossed cover and three bright ribbons to mark reference places. But when I open the book the I get the loveliest surprise of all. Two six-sided dice tumble onto my lap from their hiding place, a die-cut hole in every book page. They’re cheap, with an owl instead of a one, and the thought occurs that this falling out ritual will, in time, become quite annoying. But right now, I’m in ecstasy.
