Narrenturm: tower of fools

Still in Vienna, though we are getting the train to Berlin tomorrow. Here is a wee sneak of a drawing of a lovely lithograph from 1796 in a book about how there are no fools (crazies) in Vienna. If you look closely you can see them in the windows and one creeping out the door. Although things worked out quite differently in the tower than we had anticipated it´s an amazing amazing place and it houses some fascinating specimens and the marks of many tragic lives.
