I had originally posted this article to my timeline on Facebook but feel it deserves the greater permanence this blog affords. If it were not for my Mom, I don’t believe I would be the person or the artist I have become. I will always love her and thank her for all she has done for me.

While it may carry a certain sentimental value for many, this artifact we call a book is not what’s most important. Far more important is the content, the stories and the knowledge found within the book. In human history, the printed book is a relatively recent arrival, having existed for only about 600 years of humanity’s thousands of years existence.* The content we now find in books has always been with us, communicated from person to person and culture to culture through various media, beginning with gestures, touch, and speech.
