Now Wholly Irregular, But Still Reading

Holy shit is Alison Kinney's Hood good and I'm still in the first chapter. It's a short book in the "Object Lessons" series, and just the stuff she has to say about the history of hoods in art -- who wears them and who doesn't, when that changes (when did the Grim Reaper go from being a bare skeleton to a hooded and robed one?), and why, and how that very much links to the present -- will blow your mind. I can't wait to read the rest of it.
