About Legends

Legends was conceived, designed, and edited by Paula Katherine Marmor, who is also responsible for typos, graphics, and HTML. This site was built in Home Site between 1997 and 2007, and it still loads.

Many of the illustrations are based on originals in the archives at ArtToday, now part of Jupiter Media's ClipArt.com [www.clipart.com], and from collections available through The Scriptorium (RIP). Appropriate licensing fees have been paid for these and other source graphics, which are used with permission. Some public domain illustrations are scanned from volumes in the editor's collection.

Graphic manipulations were done in various versions of PaintShop Pro unless other otherwise indicated (see the Notes for detailed information on graphics processing and information on individual illustrations).
