This weeks photographic prompt for Focus on Life over at the Studio Sublime was 'Typography'. I LOVE books - I have books pretty much in every room of the house, from brand-new to very, very old! I quite often buy books simply because I am drawn to the title - which can lead to disappointment or sometimes an amazingly good read if lucky! Barbara Kingsolver's Poisonwood Bible has to be one of my all time favourite books - the cover is delicately plain yet appealing, with gold embossing and a simple, intriguing title. I am also drawn to the beautiful titles of Gail Tsukiyama's books - a wonderful author, she is definitely another favourite - who could resist titles such as the Language of Threads and Dreaming Water!
I am sure I will never be a Kindle kind of girl - I often just hold my books, and rub my hands over the cover and drink in the beauty and texture of the book cover - it is a huge part of the enjoyment of reading a good book!
