Magical Books

For this week’s Lens Artist challenge, Ann-Christine asks us to show what we find magical. My answer: Books.

What an astonishing thing a book is….An author is speaking clearly and silently inside your head….A book is proof that humans are capable of working magic.
~ Carl Sagan

  1. I cannot but agree – books are magical. A big part of my life as well. Beautiful still life photography – and the little owl…owls are something I collect, or at least sometimes get or buy. Closely connected to books and wisdom.

  2. Absolutely! Knowledge, stories… entire worlds are contained in books. The magic lies all around books, too. It’s within the creation of the contents of the books and then the consumption of the contents from the books.
