Alas Lord Muck

An Illustrated story in rhyme

The story is about an industrialist who is obsessed with greed and power. His dark, brooding presence comes across as a top-hatted Victorian. He appears in every illustration (like a sinister, 'Where's Wally'). There are 21 illustrations, with accompanying verses, plus a front cover and a back cover. You can see it as a flipbook, by clicking on the link below. I have also included a random selection of the illustrations, which appear in the book with each verse.

Mother nature's offerings

He greedily devoured
