Not so Brilliant horses…
With the vast selection of pictures available from stock image sites comes an increase of unauthorised interpretations of copyrighted work. Maybe I should see this as flattery, particularly when the derivative item is attractive. But there remain feelings of bad manners, injustice and dishonesty, particularly when it is a commercial activity.

Of course, you can have your very own version of a certain horse, thanks to the diagrams from this page! If you’d like a fully authorised original folded example, something like the one above, please contact me, and I’m sure we can do business…
Here are a selection of unauthorised versions.
