In Context—Quotations from Revisited Books

In Context—Direct Brush Sketch and A Brief Review of “Taboo.”

  I know last week when I started the new series “In-Context” I wrote that I wouldn’t be writing a blog post with the images—but today’s entry really required a bit more “context.” In January I started watching “Taboo” staring Tom Hardy.
