# 5 and #6, The Bard Lions
On the east wall of the library floor in the tower at Wizard Academy you’ll find an elaborate bookcase and a 300 year-old book press. Above the bookcase are the bronze lions of Ray Bard.
Bard Press published the Wizard of Ads trilogy and served as the original chairman of the board of Wizard Academy. He also personally funded the western wall of the library floor of the tower. Wizzo bought the Bard lions to stand proud guard above his bookcase.
Ray is of English descent, of course.
After all, he is a Bard.
