“Was not their mistake once more bred of the life of slavery that they had been living?—a life which was always looking upon everything, except mankind, animate and inanimate—‘nature,’ as people used to call it—as one thing, and mankind as another, it was natural to people thinking in this way, that they should try to make ‘nature’ their slave, since they thought ‘nature’ was something outside them” — William Morris

Hyperobjects Final Update 1

It's like making a meal for a rather large number of people. Did I forget the toast points? I'm fixing the captions today and adding some acknowledgments to my excellent editors and to the very very kind reader, who revealed his name (you will find out). I also need to fix my author questionnaire and think about who will puff it. I say puff rather than blurb, because technically a blurb is actually the description of the book on the jacket. A puff is someone's salesmanship of it.

Happily Minnesota like actual discussion of images in captions. There is quite a lot to say and I can understand how with 23 pictures, many in color, someone might rifle through the book and look at the images. You want the captions to say something meaningful.
