I want to thank Hamilton for writing these commentaries as each plate in this series was published. In the plates themselves, I had to discipline myself to write in a terse way to fit the available space. Using just text, Hamilton was free to expand on the fantasies presented, much to the enjoyment of everyone. Indeed, he often expresses a different take on the story, which makes it all the more interesting. His writing is so fine, I didn’t want it to stay buried on the Message Board, so I’ve collected it here.
(Excellent idea! Hamilton’s words beautifully complement the art, its great to have them in one place. Thanks –Jayiijay)
