Literary Saloon isn’t happy with the decision:
Gratuitous ?!? What, their next monograph on the Mona Lisa will make do with an accurate description of the painting in words ? Give me a break ! (And I have to wonder why an 'accurate description' would not be equally offensive -- beyond the suggestion that those who take offense are so sub-literate that they only react to crude drawings .....) … I generally admire what Yale University Press does, but this is both shocking and terribly disappointing.
