I have been wanting to see these lampshades made from manuscripts for quite some time. On a recent visit to my parents in California, I finally had the chance to go down to San Simeon and tour Hearst Castle, including viewing the lampshades.

‘Sutro Sam’ is a river otter that has found his way to San Francisco (from where is unknown, but Marin has been suggested, meaning he would have swum the Golden Gate) and taken up residence in the brackish waters of the ruins of the Sutro Baths. Recently featured on the news, he has been the subject of great curiosity, attracting modest crowds; regardless, he has been out and building a nest in an old concrete drain, from which he pops out his head from time to time.
