I wonder how many hands these books have passed through, what future teachers, doctors, scientists, etc... poured over their pages and how many minds were molded by their content?.... Creative Power at it's finest... KNOWLEDGE!

Finalist - August 2009

Oh, such wonderful old books and such wonderfully rich color! Perfect for the monthly theme - have to agree completely with Alan..hopefully, we haven't lost the sheer pleasure of a comfortable chair and a good book...Let's hope not! Great job!

Amy- Not only are you a gifted artist, but from your description of this picture and the thoughts behind it, you also possess wisdom.
Ilove the pov and the fact that the bookd do look like they have been read many times by many readers. Clarity of the titles are sharp, the colors and textures so beautiful. Love the treatment and the way it ties in with the age of the books.
And what an entry for the MT. Very thoughtful and creative.
Gorgeous work my friend.
You have yourself a wonderful day and do take care.
