Golden Treasury
Experimenting with depth of field. I said to my husband, "I want to give the impression that the books go on and on" and he said, "Well, they do!"



"No book is worth anything which is not worth much; nor is it serviceable, until it has been read, and re-read, and loved, and loved again; and marked, so that you can refer to the passages you want in it, as a soldier can seize the weapon he needs in an armoury, or a housewife bring the spice she needs from her store. Bread of flour is good; but there is bread, sweet as honey, if we would eat it, in a good book; and the family must be poor indeed which, once in their lives, cannot, for such multipliable barley-loaves, pay their baker's bill."

John Ruskin, "Sesame and Lilies – Of Kings' Treasuries"

Books do go on and on, notwithstanding Kindle etc. Nothing beats the book in hand, a bookmark, aroma - fresh or old.......
