"'A Picture is worth a thousand words', goes an old saying, and this has been true throughout history. Pictures have been an ever-present and important part of communication since ancient times. Pictures can, in many cases, get across information that is too detailed or complex to be easily delivered in words. Some pictures and works of art are created simply to be pleasant to look at, but many do more than just this - they show an element of the culture and life of time, tell a complete story, or offer warnings, instructions, or viewpoints about particular actions or events." - Clifford, Clive (1999) Eyewitness Guides: Media: Trace the History of Communications - from Hieriglyphics to the Information Superhighway, Dorling Kindersley, London.
