|The Walters Art Museum in Baltimore, MD|
While here we looked around at the book binding exhibit and although I can't quote names of the makers, they were awesome little gems. Lookie...
The one at the right is bound on six sides! and opens in a zig-zag method, each section a different book!
I love a book, don't love the kindle as much as I do a book, although it has it's good points. I like to hold a book and not scroll from page to page if I missed something. Funny how we have to scroll from page to page now, like the old scribes who wrote in hieroglyphics on papyrus.
The museum provided us with a small piece of papyrus to write our story, but I took mine home instead, to write a story and put it in my journal.
He obviously came home with us and lives in our cheerful clutter reminding us to find enjoyment in the mundane and oh so daily life we live. He might have led me to a word to explore for the new year.
Enjoy. We'll see....
Hope you enjoyed our trip to the gallery, and are doing something different over the holidays. Tell me about your adventures...
