“book love: a project born of my love of the written word. I grew up hearing “books are your friends!” and it’s remained true all my life. I want to take photos of people with books they love – it’s a little facet to their personality that remains hidden to a casual observer. This project is ongoing & if you’d like to be a part of it, please drop me a line : arinnw at gmail dot com.”
This week we will be turning our book loving gaze upon…well…me! It’s me! Arinn took my picture and maybe captured my soul in the photos. Only time will tell.
“I love Philip Pullman’s His Dark Materials more than any other book I have ever read. It is one of the most wholly original and fascinating fantasy worlds I have ever encountered (external souls in the form of shape shifting animal familiars! armored bear father figures! angels made of pure consciousness! millions of worlds existing in the same space, only separated by a veil that can be cut by a magical knife!), but for all its fantasy the resonance of this story lies firmly in its exploration of the nature of our existence as human beings. Pullman marries heavy philosophical concepts with one of the best fantasy adventures stories ever written. It is, quite simply, the best.”
