My little "vacation" from research will be over in a few days . . . promise. I'm reading the Barnhurst/Nerone book mentioned in my previous post; it's not quite what I'd expected, but excellent nevertheless.
Barnhurst's "Seeing the Newspaper" is also supposed to be arriving soon but, as it had supposedly been shipped before I moved house, who knows when or if I'll get it.
I'm thinking of adding links here to online stores carrying the books I'm reading for this project; will sign up for affiliate programs where they're available, but won't be offended if no one uses them to buy anything.
