Since I am on an extremely tight budget, this is the only book that I can not resist buying (probably because it’s on sale – and 50% off at that). My daughter already has Wolves in the Walls, The Day I Swapped my Dad for Two Goldfish, and Coraline – it appears then that Mirrormask is a Must. We had hoped to do a Special Feature on Dave McKean for this month but since we are all running around all over the place, this may actually be done a little later.
Here are some of the book pictures that I have taken as I was going around my second favorite place (the book store, the first one being the library). And while I can not buy them, I can have them in this blogpost and own them through that. I also believe that books speak to you from dusty bookshelves, book bins, book chests, book repositories or what not. There is a different kind of energy that exists between the hand that takes and flips the book open and what the pages whisper to you through your hands. Here are some of my favorites.
Have any of you read any of these books? I’d love to hear any feedback/thoughts you may have.
