Navigating the Anticruise

This web-presentation is organized like a book. You'll get the most out of it by going through it in a similar manner: from beginning to end.

Carrying on with the book topology, the HOME page is the same as a book cover.

Next is the CONTENTS page (hint, you are on it now). From here, those spacey links (in the table above) can take you to specific entries.

An IMAGES catalog provides a mind boggling contact-sheet (a term from the prehistoric times of non-digital photography) array of thumbnail links to each photo used in this presentation.

These stunningly beautiful, navigation menu-bars (floating gracefully above the bottom of each page) take you sequentially through the presentation. They always know where you are, and exactly where to go next.
