Illustrated Erdnase?

Postby Joe Pecore » April 2nd, 2008, 2:24 pm

I was reading through my old copies of Richard's Almanac and in Volume 1 there was mention about starting to work on something called the "Illustrated Erdnase".

I assume this eventually became the "Annotated Erdnase", but without the illustrations. Is that correct? If so, whatever happened with the idea of creating illustrations rather then photos?

It was Michael Ammar's idea for me to add hundreds of illustrations to Erdnase. Vernon hated the idea. I eventually sold the project (with annotations) to Bill Taylor. He sold it to Mike Caveney. I never did any illustrations for it.
