Index: Object Types

5 Responses to “Index: Object Types”

  1. I’m surpirised you don’t mention Hans Baldung Grien, Durer’s pupil who did a few pictures of very sexy witches- most notably this one: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Hans_Baldung_-_Stehende_Hexe_mit_Ungeheuer.jpg
    Aren’t some of Goya’s witches sexy too?

    If you’ll forguve me for saying so, you aren’t too strong on literary witches- obvious omissions are Fritz Leiber’s Conjure Wife, Mikhail Bulgakov’s The Master and Margarita an Sylvia Townsend Warner’s Lollie Willowes- the last isn’t sexy, but is a superb novel anyway.

    Ah Roger, if you had any idea how long and how hard I have been working on my Hans Baldung Grien collection. I won’t do a post until I have decent images and these are surprisingly difficult to get. My standards are *high*; the image you link to is only 420 pixels wide: my minimum is 1000, but I need much higher if I am to offer any detailed images. I have spent a fortune, but I am still lacking one image. So, soon, but not yet.

    Goya’s witches? No. Definitely not.

    Fritz Leiber’s Conjure Wife? Yes, but I only have four editions, and not the one I need. There is also the film of the book, which I have watched twice, and have some official still s from, but not in colour (as I’d like). I am closer to ready on Smith’s Passionate Witch. The others I will look into.

    But the problem in general is it takes a lot longer to read a text than to watch a film or to scan an image. And — although I might give the impression I have endless time — I actually find it really difficult to find the time to read novels on top of maintaining the blog, so they tend to get continually pushed back on my to do list. Also, I like pictures for the blog and so I like to have a collection of cover-art before I do a post.

    So, criticism accepted. I’ll do what I can.
