The February issue of Carnivalesque is up at Pilgrim/Heretic! It’s a bustling fair filled with such wonderful wares as early modern astronomy, perspective drawing, gallows speeches, or an early modern view on the current hubbub over the Mohammed cartoons. I hadn’t yet spotted this review by Past Tense of Linda Levy Peck’s Consuming Splendor, and I’m going to dive straight in.
And oh yes, I will certainly recycle this Carnivalesque’s catchy words on Earmarks in Early Modern Culture in the “description” box of blog directories: a “veritable treasure-trove of treats”! — thank you Pilgrim/Heretic for this wonderful issue of Carnivalesque!
