Gertrude Stein’s biography reads like a Who’s Who during the roaring 1920’s with cubists, surrealists, dadaists, art dealers and publicists all intertwined. Not surprisingly, this makes her incredibly hard to read for students, so I made it easy.

Here’s the illustrated version, hyperlinked and annotated up the wazoo. I may have gone a little overboard with the pictures, but then how else could you visualize how human excrement was collected in those days?  Enjoy.
