There are few things in this world that I love more than I love books. Until very recently, my favorite kinds of books were those with stories written in them… Then the goddess of OmaLinda’s Boondoggle Emporium chose to sponsor Witches in Fiction 2013… to the Bone’s eighth giveaway, by taking a half-dead tome and altering it back to red and black enchanting life, and now I find myself loving a book that is its own story.
Oma Linda said she loved “the way the back of the book turned out; looks old and bloody in a reverse color way. The graphic of the praying skeleton is perfection in a frame from the Graphics Fairy…” My Oma luv is enjoying the art of giving books another life, and “not only the altering but the smell of the old books, the feel and texture of the thick paper pages and cloth bindings… tactile overload but such a rush.”
