The Visual Telling of Stories
A lyrical encyclopedia of visual propositions;
a visually orientated taxonomy of the ways in which pictures are used to tell stories.

And we, spectators always, everywhere
Looking at, never out of, everything !
It fills us. We arrange it. It decays.
We rearrange it, and decay ourselves.
Rainer Maria Rilke, Duino Elegies, the eighth elegy, 1922

I'm really curious to see what the site has, but I guess the server can't handle the attention.

Hiding the links as annoying little tiny boxes off to the side of the text really misses the hypertext aspect of HTML, not to mention being just bad usability.
