The Evil Eye

If I could click my heels together three times and transport myself to 16th Century York, England—indeed I would—just to see all of the old book shops and printers which the town was famed for then. This printer's devil at 33 Stonegate, still keeps vigil outside what was once a printer's studio. Local legend has it he was blamed for any printers' spelling errors long ago. These days, it is said to be unlucky to look into his beady little eyes. (He's probably casting a spell in revenge). Oh spellchecker, why must you be so dull?
