Wondrous Work, Pt.I
November 17, 2010 § 1 Comment
I rarely place an order online for anything other than a new, or slightly used, book. Though I truly love to visit bookstores, I rarely end up actually purchasing a book. I love to go, grab a coffee and quietly enjoy being in the presence of other book lovers such as myself. Being an avid bargain hunter, I can’t help but be in favor of buying books where they’re cheapest – online. That being said, there is always a sense of apprehension when I order anything off Amazon or Abe books. Will it get damaged in the mail? Is it the edition I really wanted? Did I wait this long for a book I don’t really like? I wait in a state of slight anxiety until I get that package on my doorstep.
Needless to say, when I received my copy of “I Wonder” by Marian Bantjes, the thrill of seeing that lovely book in my hands was well worth the anxiety. There have been dozens of posts praising the beauty of this book, and I can’t help but add my voice to the mix. “I Wonder” is truly a work of art. With its gold foiled stamped cover, beautifully printed interior and a trove of inspirational design, the book is a treasure to behold.
And right now, I plan on perusing my gorgeous copy. Later this week I’ll tell you know what Part II is all about, so stay tuned!
