Ever since Gutenberg discovered and patented ASCII and the
corresponding "Courier New" font with its now-famous "ten" point
size, artisans and artificers have striven to represent their views
of the world in print.

Similarly, starting from Darwin's discovery of the hippogriff and his
subsequent registration of the creature as an International Trade
Mark, men (and some women) have struggled to catalog the fabulous
variety that is called "nature".

This document supplies a number of representations of all manner of
things (both elemental and hypothetical) supplied by some of our best
collectors of curios and delivered in a manner that may well be
reused by the cunning document author.
