April's Bookish Art...

 
Adolphe Alexandre Lesrel -- Captivated


"A book is like a trapdoor that leads to a secret attic:
You can open it and go inside. And your world is different."
--Antonio Iturbe, The Library of Auschwitz

  10. I absolutely love that quote. And reading lady looks like she's disappeared through that trapdoor already. Great combination of the two. Well done, Lark.
