An Athena of Owls

Edinburgh's Owl & Lion Gallery and the West Port Book Festival hosted an Illustration challenge for a Twitter collective noun contest

I've been collecting and inventing Collective Nouns for years—ever since I read A Parliament of Birds. My winning entry, "An Athena of Owls" was selected and illustrated by Isabella Ting. (Not clear in the book—it looks like she wrote it). But here's a link to my original entry.

The winning entries are on display at the Owl & Lion Gallery from 15-27th June, 2010. You can purchase an artists’ book featuring all 15 illustrations as well as individual prints at A4 size.

The Owl & Lion is at 15 Grassmarket, Edinburgh, EH1 2HS +44(0)131 220 0900The West Port (street) Book Festival, in Edinburgh's "Soho" district will run from 24th-27th June. Free tickets from
