A Sighting in the Wild

I think this was published a couple of years ago, but we were pleased recently to see ‘Vectis’ in use on the cover of Jim Butcher’s “The Aeronaut’s Windlass”.  Must admit I’m not entirely sure what an Aeronaut does or where the windlass comes into it, but it is an impressively dramatic looking cover…
