bōc-cynn, n.n: a kind of book. (BOAK-KUEN / ˈboːk-ˌkyn)

A book, “The Deorhord: An Old English Bestiary”, by Hana Videen, author of “The Wordhord”, against a red background with a gold border, with a griffin in the bottom left corner and a dove in the upper right. Profile Books logo is at the bottom right. The title and author’s name are written inside an arched window shape, surrounded by wood-cut style illustrations in green and gold, each in its own compartment but overlapping slightly: a wolf, a whale, a dove, a crocodile-like creature, a dog-headed person holding a cross, a deer, a four-legged creature with three horns on its forehead, a phoenix in a burning nest, a medieval woman writing, a snake, and a griffin.
Today I’m excited to announce my next bōc… The Deorhord: An Old English Bestiary. Coming this November!
