Your book, so elegant. How many ways can it be praised? A sonnet would come up short I'm sure. For one, the very dimensions set it apart, rather more than any run-o-the-mill quarto. Then the illustrations unfold with their own grace and the texts: lets them assume presence each in its own way flowering, not all reduced to blocs. Your wit then as you introduce the project entices & diverts. You accomplish a great deal more with less, giving credit where some savant has shown the way, yet never anchored or chained to notes, giving Gerard his due. Your dispatch on caraway/apple convinces & intrigues. You demonstrate your learning lightly & whet appetite for more. All in all, marvellous. And funny!
