Sandalwood Smugglers Graphic Novel

I am biassed. Sandalwood was, at the age of 9, the first smell I hunted down and tracked back to a single oil in Falmouth. Now perhaps exotic woods are not best associated with cornish fishing ports but, given i was reading Jamaica Inn at the time it all melded together to wisper to me of exotic lands, smuggling and smoke. Sandalwood is one of the most delicate, complex wood oils available but it is endangered and through this incredible thought provoking tale, as is often the case, the lust of europeans for the exotic caused very little but trouble.
