From which, with the aid of scissors, sharp knife, glue and patience, you may build your very own Unseen University. For those who care about these things, the end result is in approximately scale, although the Grinjers among us would be driven to distraction by the way those pesky wizards keep distorting time and space so that any attempt to precisely measure how much space the University occupies at any one time is doomed to failure.
