Dear Deni and Friends,

I am posting the note (below) which I had sent to Hermine off-l, she claims that it contains enough ''scholarly'' and important information that it NEEDS to be on aroid-l, so here goes, and to any prudes ''out there'', bring on the heat!!
Deni, I certainly do hope that someone can find a way to post the illustration from Edward Lear`s book of silly limricks, or that you can find a way to scan it from your copy for our viewing pleasure. What an interesting topic!
Geoff, thanks for the tip on the availabilty of that book of victorian illustrations.
There is a copy of one of these modern comic books 'out there' in which in the wonderfully artistic illustrations done in beautiful color, the art depicts an alien ''being'' who is drawn as a VERY recognisable bloom belonging to the Araceae, and who seduces a beautiful young woman!! I sent copies to a collector of aroid art some years ago!

The Best,
