Let's play a little game. Think about the First World War for a minute. Good. Now think about the Renaissance. Okay: Which one did you think of in black and white? Did I just BLOW YOUR MIND? Anyway, yes, the reasons are obvious, but it's still kind a neat trick. I got it from here.

Team TLS! (The LRB is the Walter Scott of the literary reviews.)

I think of the apocalypse in 3D.

This new technology is changing the way we think!

Black and white as in the causes and effects of the war? It's a very nuanced subject.

I have a tough time thinking about a future without Walter Pidgeon.

Now close your eyes and think about the paleolithic period while I lift your wallet.

I imagine the early Middle Ages happened as tapestry, the late Middle Ages was a big woodcut, but the future, when we conqure space, is vector graphics.

The Civil War looks like a bunch of sad letters.

@deepomega and slow zooms on still photographs, lots of slow zooms.

Some of us have come to see the First World War in a Downton Abbey palette. Can we still learn something, reading that link?

Blackadder is my benchmark for both, whatever that implies (it implies color in both cases).
