The Sacred Landscape is illustrated with gifs and jpgs from many sources. I am a strong supporter of copyright law and of creative acknowledgement. The graphics on these pages were either scanned by me from public domain sources or come from online image archives and are used in accordance with the terms set forth in those archives. In some cases i have altered a copyright-free "stock cut" photo in order to produce an aethetic effect; in those cases the original source is still credited, but a note such as "colour-altered" or "dithered" is appended. Credits are as follows:

root-five spiral design, gif
Edward B. Edwards, "Dynamarhythmic Design" (1932); scanned and coloured by catherine yronwode.
See the Bibliography: Letter E for original publication data.
Says Edwards of this design:

To construct this unit a circle is drawn around a petagon within which are drawn its diagonals resulting in the smaller related pentagon in the center. From the poles located in the angles of the smaller pentagon are drawn five root-five spirals to the angles of the larger pentagon. From the same poles are drawn supplementary spirals...continued to a point where they abut the adjoining supplementary spirals.

Margaret's Grocery and Market
Facade of the church-store on Highway 61 in Vicksburg, Mississippi; scanned by catherine yonwode
No photo or copyright credit given; published in "Raw Vision: The International Journal of Intuitive and Visionary Art" (No. 15, Summer, 1996). I had to fork over $10.50 for this pretentious magazine about "art brut" just to get the one image to scan. If that's not paying my dues, okay, then let's consider what i did a fair-use illustration for the following review: "'Raw Vision' is an overpriced, shallow, and totally barfable confection. Its primary function is to propagandize the commodification of 'outsider' art so that yuppie gallery owners in New York can drink pink champagne while cooing to their customers about the 'powerful' and 'naive' dreck produced by the 'self taught' scribblers they represent. The occasional articles on genuine folk art do not adequately offset the disgusting commerciality of the bulk of the magazine. The only good thing about the entire package is that the photographs are of high quality, as can be seen from the accompanying scan. Subscriptions cost $38.00 for 4 issues/1 year. Send your bucks to 163 Amsterdam Avenue, #203, New York City, NY 10023." Good enough? I sure hope so.
