Bookmark Number 8 – Tweetie – Watercolor & Black Pigment Liner

I just finished Bookmarks 8 through 18.    Does anyone but me actually read paper books these days?  I love books and I’m not ready to give them up.  🙂

I hope you are having a safe and fun 4th of July weekend.



About e. e. cummings

The writer who became known as e. e. cummings was an experimental poet whose idiosyncratic typography complements the music of his poetry; he published more than 900 poems, two novels, and four plays. He was also an accomplished painter. He was born in Massachusetts in 1894 and entered the ambulance corps in World War I but ended up in a detention camp after expressing his pacifist views. He died in 1962. His most famous poem was “In Just-“.

    I love the feeling I get sitting on the couch with a stack of three or more art books taking out the bookmark and reading a section popping the bookmark back in and moving on to the next. The weight of the books on my lap and the height it gives me to prop the book I’m reading feels right.
