1.06 The Folio Terence, paragraph 9, replying to Susan Barron

Never get tired of looking at the folio Terence with commentary format. The several pages here are terrific looking, as opposed to the “illustrations” which are boring to my eye. Surely they were something when they were done, but does not keep my eye/head engaged as the texts do.

Again this is provocative and exceptionally intriguing. The little worms at the gutter edge on the verso and the fore edge on the recto are wonderful. On previous illustration, the worms are similarly delicious. The ones on this page stand out more vividly.

1.12 Lazzaro Soardi's Mixed Messages, paragraph 7

The book used here is extraordinary.
Words are quite superfluous.

1.12 Lazzaro Soardi's Mixed Messages, paragraph 7

This is a provocative image! The way the scroll depicted might be rolled in either direction is an idea I can file for possible use for a scroll with no beginning and end.

0.08 Graphics Too, paragraph 3

Well, it does work as a single piece now, but it was clearly done by the different students who handled the book.

2.11 Humanist Critiques of the Donat, whole page

PS to previous message. In the text there are several references to teaching a foreign language: that the children must be able to comprehend the meaning somehow right off – by similarities with their mother-tongue.
Very good observation. It’s not too different with adults learning a foreign language! Too bad the US is not smaller, which would require us to become devoted to the learning of a foreign language or two or three — out of economic necessity.

2.11 Humanist Critiques of the Donat, whole page

Re: 2.11 visual example & 0.08 visual example:
New images at 2.11 seem but typical little boy pictures with totally innocent yet the typical delusions of grandeur. There is not much more than that. The availability of the writing surface seemed to be irresistible to the youngster for his own purposes and there are not enough meaningful scribbles for my taste.
Contrast 2.11 with the magnificent singleton 0.08, which seems somehow much more deliberate and from a more earnest or studious school boy. A creation. The boxes and lists of numbers/letters decry (or disguise) the one/two innocent little boy scribbles of dangling paraphernalia. An entire blank stimulated a real image to my eye and I find it much more interesting.
Just think when we were in school and caught writing in our books!! Off with our heads! Oh my fur and whiskers!!

These printed commentary pages are very beautiful. Dense and full and provoking to my eye.
