actually to be more specific: the library doesn't add a viewBox attribute to the svg tag, so AxiDraw defaults to interpreting the units inside the SVG as pixels. if I add a viewBox manually (that equals the width and height of the document), then everything works!
(to me it seems like a better default behavior for Axidraw would be to assume a viewBox of "0 0 <width> <height>" if a viewBox isn't specified but I'm sure they had their reasons?)

I was reading Ann Fauntleroy's _Quotations_ (or I think that was the title), an intensely beautiful little Gilded Age volume that was somehow a combination of a riddle book, a trivia book, and a book of hours, with autobiographical anecdotes interspersed, printed with full color illustrations by the author. Upon waking in the middle of the night, I was so devastated to realize that no such book ever existed that I looked up (and found) its Wikipedia page in a subsequent dream

I received my contributor's copy of Jhave's _ReRites - Raw Output / Responses_ the other day and I highly recommend it, both as a record of a poet's sustained engagement with machine learning, and as a book of, like, good poems.
also included: a bunch of fun insightful essays written in response to the project by (e.g.) @nickmofo and Johanna Drucker. (and *me*, actually, and it's still surreal to see an essay I wrote in same book as all these writers I look up to!)
