all very true.

the glasgow cover has this same quality of being of no era in particular as well and/or sometime ago.   this is key to the jandek genius.  it's so anonymous at times, like you said about the world book encycs.  part of his appeal for me is -- not to put too fine a point on it -- the spaced out quality i remember from buzzing out in class and just staring at the photos in textbooks.

you're right.  kinda reminds me in a way of the old
World Book encyclopedias my mom has.  They're from the
early 70's.

yes, but as I recall - feel free to correct me on this
- but Muslims do not revere Christ as Savior, just as
another prophet (they put their emphasis on Mohammed).
