I’ve been reading the Aubrey/Maturin books recently, and these diagrams inside the front cover are always helpful.

I love the short text pieces that they used to put in comics. Even if most of them were absolute gibberish that was only put there so that the books would be considered “magazines” and allowed to ship for a lower price through the US mail. There’s something about them that makes them seem even more nostalgic than the comics themselves.
