This interdisciplinary collection differs from other collections of essays on literature and the visual arts in its emphasis on the image as situated in cultural, as opposed to perceptual, contexts. Broadly speaking, the writers of these sixteen essays join those who, in a variety of fields, have been taking note of the ways in which communication relies on a matrix of social or cultural norms. From this point of view, cultural setting becomes not merely interesting background but intrinsic to comprehension. The selected essays range in chronological scope from the twelfth to the twentieth centuries, organized in sections according to the nature of the "text" each had chosen to address. The essays in the first section concern themselves in some way with paintings, which serve as a means by which the authors explore other genres, such as drama, poetry, and essays. The second section has as its common elements the book as a crossroads of genres, high and low culture, thought and action, addressing questions of gender, religion, and aesthetic value. The essays of the third section collapse the inherent sister arts orientation of the first two into artifacts loosely associated with the traditional distinction between "painting" and "poetry," but more popular or less distinct than these - film, maps, bridges, furniture, architecture, computers.

Sometimes it is difficult to determine the fine line between myth, legend and history. One thing Jeremiah Willow-Bottom discovers is that it is not wise to tempt fate. Jeremiah Willow-Bottom and Dandelion Flamethrower are now at university. All their previous adventures were depicted on a huge and ancient tapestry that hung in her father’s palace in the Faerie dimension (Jeremiah Willow-Bottom and the Disenchanted Forest). Upon reflection Jeremiah realises that it had not been there before the king first showed it to him. Curious to know its origin he persuades Dandelion to take him back to the Dark Land so they can investigate further. Unfortunately, some powerful magic has been set in motion and Dandelion is drawn into the tapestry by an unknown force. Jeremiah, with his power to see reality, manages to open a gateway and embarks on a rescue. He is pulled through history, myth and legend until he is not entirely sure which is which. Along the way he meets many strange helpers, including a musical dinosaur. Now all he has to do is find Dandelion.
