My inspiration...

I picked up a book a year and a half ago. It wasn't anything special, or so I thought. There have been a few books in my life that I find myself really falling in love with. When a was a preteen it was A Wrinkle in Time, when I was a teen The Vampire Lestat, in my twenties Harry Potter, now the Inkheart trilogy. This is important because the Inkheart book sparked something in me. When the author writes about bookbinding I was drawn in immediately. I needed to know all I could about bookbinding. To the library! I took out all four books, apparently it's not as popular as I thought it would be. I took it all in, and decided then that I would try to learn and grow as a bookbinder. That is how I got into my hobby, a book, which is now a movie with Brendan Frasier. OK, I never thought my artistic outlet would be linked to a movie, blah. So of course... I had to go see the movie this weekend. I loved the movie for what it was, a movie. I was very disappointed that they barely touched on the wonderful images I remember reading in the book. So, off to reread the book. hmmm...
