Touched by an angel. Or demon.
The 16th-century alchemist and mathematician John Dee spent years documenting his conversations with what he believed to be angels.
40 years after his death, the scholar Méric Causabon published Dee’s records, arguing that Dee had been talking to evil spirits all along. So what are you reading this weekend? Title page from “A True and Faithful Relation …,” 1659, Méric Causabon. Getty Research Institute.

Phyllis Ginger.
Alexander The Circus Pony.
One of the highlights of the Puffin Picture Book series. Lithographed at The Baynard Press in 1942, whilst she was painting for The Recording Britain project. A protégée of Badmin’s Ginger was just one of a number of a talented generation of female lithographers.
