Poetic art ...

One more post about Vachel Lindsay before we move on. Though Lindsay was best known as a poet, he was also a pretty interesting graphic artist, and many of his published poems were accompanied by some fairly intriguing line art.

The drawing below, from Lindsay's 1923 book Going-to-the-Sun, is a good example of his visual style. I think it's pretty cool, although from looking at it you might think that Glacier Park has volcanoes!
