Shout out to the one person who reads my blog, you know who you are.
I have been reading and learning a lot, especially history, and generating picture-paper-idea-things. The above image where some illustrations I did a while ago, that I arranged as a little cartoon about the conversation James Whitman had on the New Books in History Podcast. I think it's a worthy listen for anyone interested in trying to understand global conflict.
Some of what he talked about with the ancient history of declaring war reminded me of Herodotus, of course.
Anyway, maybe a bit of a rusty and arcane blog post but I just wanted to stretch the mussels.
