Woo-hoo! My first WINK review is live. So thrilled to be involved in this project.
For my first book, I reviewed the amazing Cartographies of Time, by Anthony Grafton and Daniel Rosenberg:
Cartographies of Time is literally groovy. As you hold it in your hands, the horizontal corrugations in the cover boards constantly and literally impress you with the subject of the book: the line as the most persistent device for representing notions of time. This gorgeous tome is the first history of graphical representations of time, from the 15th century to the present, as practiced in Europe and the United States. The book is brimming with beautiful photos with deep captions and even deeper expository text.
Look for my reviews twice a month, likely every 15th and 28th.
