Word And Image

Pointing out that blogs with images -- preferably those involving bikinis -- will always be a bigger draw than humble word-oriented litblogs, Finn Harvor calls for new thinking and new forms:

"[Speaking of] the relationship between the relatively small world of litblogging and the massive world of the image: what's been said here doesn't mean all literature needs to incorporate images. But it does mean there needs to be conscious recognition of the role images now play, for better or worse, in our culture. So we need to be more open-minded about experimenting with new forms. This means not only recognizing that the book can be both text and image, but also that maybe this is a tendency that should be encouraged. Images can work with art rather than be a distraction from it."


  • Mea culpa (though not maxima culpa). I posted a pic of a lady displaying acres of the "too, too solid flesh".

    Now if you do not hotfoot it over to my blog to check that out, you're a better man than I am .. Charley Brown!
