Illustration Friday - Obsession

Visit Bookland Often.

With this image, I wanted to pay homage to my main obsession: books!

I LOVE books-- real, ink-on-paper, books. I love everything about them! I get nervous when I hear talk of how digital books are going to replace real books. I can't imagine a world without bookshops and libraries, lined with shelves full of BOOKS! What a terrible thought!

I'm going to put this collage up in my son's room to remind him of all the adventures reading takes you on.

(Detail from image)


  1. I would love this collage in my room!! I share your love of real books, but I'm slowly learning to accept digital books too...

  2. I love this one! I totally agree about books. Books are just so amazing... the touch, the turning of the page, the satisfaction of inching your way through. I'm a 100% book gal!

  3. I love your picture -- particularly the little boat with the very important note on its sails! Funnily enough, I woke up this morning thinking about the same issues, and feeling sad.
    Lovely to meet you! :)

  4. This piece is uplifting--it reminds me of the mystery and vastness beyond our immediate world.

  5. Another cool piece, Vivi! This is so cool - It could be a pro-library PSA poster!
