The Lives and Loves of Images. Chicago: Chicago University Press, To use a phrase from the former postman and subsequent philosopher of science and literary critic Gaston Bachelard, this rich volume is of an "intimate immensity," as quoted by Mitchell, sufficient to engage anyone—that is, everyone—interested in visuality under any guise at all.

Mitchell has the great aura of a teacher—we are called upon and within. He is frequently witty, never boring, and always able to move rapidly from one sense to another in all senses without any self-conscious delight.
