Special bonus post: an open letter to cataloguers everywhere

I’d like to take this opportunity to post out-of-sequence for an open letter to all cataloguers everywhere:

Tables, charts, and other such things that consist entirely of text are NOT illustrations. Please stop calling them illustrations.

Also, nonroman text is also not illustrations.

Neither are title vignettes, cover art, etc.

It’s not that complicated. Is it a picture? No?

Then don’t call it an illustration.
