I enjoy letters from readers, and often learn from them. I recently received a great review from a New Zealand author, Lyn McConchie. What I liked best about the review follows: “…very interesting background with just sufficient explanation to make sense of it without info dumps.” That was exactly what I was trying to write, but I didn’t have the perfect expression to describe what spoils many art-related books, and which I was determined to avoid: info dumps! I’m adopting that expression, while trying to be not guilty.

Thanks, Lyn!Dump Truck
