Sample text

Suddenly it spun away, bounced off the base of the computer, and dropped over the edge onto the floor. Another did the same. Then another. Suddenly, all the pens were rolling, in several directions at once, accelerating off the edges of the desk, colliding, falling, landing, lying still. The boy watched. The last one fell. He did not move. Something laughed softly, right in his ear. With a cry he lashed out with his left arm, but made no contact. The momentum of his swing turned him around to face the desk.

The gold had been pressed with simple notched designs depicting running steeds.
