A fully illustrated collection of the quotes of a literary master.
Kenny Luck put together a vast collection of Thoreau's quotes, and each quote is fully illustrated to depict its meaning by illustrators Jay Luke and Ren Adams. Kenny Luck actually went through the journals and other writings of Thoreau to make this a great collection. This is a wonderful book for those who love Thoreau and would make a great gift, I can picture this sitting on a living room table, being thumbed through by guests or while sitting near a crackling fire.
This is the first time I have read an ebook and I felt that scrolling through the verses and pictures took a bit away from the beauty of the book, this is a book that needs to be touched! I love the artsy feel to the lettering, no common font here, different sized words along with shades of black/gray only add to the poetic side of the book. The artistic renditions don't quite mesh with the cover, I did expect more photographic type pictures so the black and white art surprised me a bit, but overall this is a very nice book and I think it would make a great gift!
*I would like to thank Tribute books for offering me the chance to review this book. This review is my thoughts, and my thoughts alone and I did not receive compensation for my review.
