Ink; wood; warm; spicy; resinous; old paper; fresh ink; an enigmatic love poem written under candlelight; the animalic and powdery scent of an old book


“This animal is abundant in the northern regions and is four or five inches long. It is endowed with a curious instinct; its eyes are like carnelians, and its fur is jet black, silky, and flexible, as soft as a pillow. It is very fond of Chinese ink, and when people write, it sits with one hand on the other and its legs crossed, waiting for them to finish, then it drinks the leftover ink. Afterward, it squats down and remains calm. WANG TA-HAI (1791)" - Jorge Luis Borges, The Book of Imaginary Beings
