Hear hear! And for those who don't automatically know how special umlauted
u's translate into some of these emails, H=FCsker D=FC translates into
Husker Du, with umlauts over those o's. One of the great punk/alternative
bands of the mostly 80's, out of Minneapolis, I believe -- nice to know
such sounds may have been listened to by book arts folks, even though right
now I may be binding books to the sounds of Charlie Parker.
Still, in a time of books as opposed to an earlier oral culture, and
recorded music more often that live shows, not to mention conversations on
e-mail, I don't think it's quite right to deny the term "culture" to
anything that's not face-to-face. As a bookmaker/publisher, after all, I
don't see most of the people who buy the books.
