Apropos of the (extensive) recent discussion on this list:
"If only it weren't illustrated!" I said to Wirtanen angrily.
"That makes a difference?" he said.
"It's mutilation!" I said. "The pictures are bound to mutilate the
words. Those words weren't meant to have pictures with them! With
pictures, they aren't the same words!"
--Kurt Vonnegut, _Mother Night_, ch. 36
