I'm having a very hard time reading the story. Even full sized, I can't make out most of the writing.

This is an absolutely gorgeous piece...
i'm sorry that its taken me so long to get to it, and i'm sorry that i don't have much to say....
but its fantastically beautiful, and i love that the colors glow from the pages just the way the old engraved prints glow on a real page...
i love that the binding of the book shows.
i love the rounded edges on the pages.
i love that the book feels loved...
it is yet another AMAZING piece by you. great job...

I can absolutely believe this piece took two weeks...the detail is exquisite!! The antique distressing on the page is fantastic...I'd love to know what you did...I mimic something like this, but it never comes out nearly this well. Beautiful work!!! :+fav: :p
