60 Books Project
This is my first page for the 60 Books Project. Sketched with a pencil and then a micron pigment pen. Used watercolor pencils and an alpha rubberstamp set. (There's a message in amongst the letters. Pay no attention to the word "stork" though... that happened before I realized that it's much easier to spell words when you're not trying to than one might think. Why I'm not better at Scrabble I don't know.)
Funny that I heard about the 60 Books Project through a yahoo group - Everydaymatters - even though it takes place in my own hometown. I looked up the details on the Wisconsin Book Festival site, though. My book group went to see Isabel Allende (http://www.isabelallende.com/) when she lectured as part of the Festival. We read "House of the Spirits" prior to seeing her, and will be reading another of her books for our January meeting.
