Now I am a book lover. And when this old paperback book of mine from high school and it was cracking and falling out of the cover, I could have thrown it into the recycle can. Instead I decided to draw on the pages. I always wanted to, but I would hear my mother’s voice in the back of my head of how special books are and how we treat them with care and love. So now, I feel no guilt because it was coming apart (well maybe a little). I was alone in the house, drawing away with my pens. I did “Courage” while I was thinking of my daughter’s birthday and all the preparation that still had to be done in less than a week. It was an anime themed party with Japanese food. My debit card had also been compromised, which made it harder to get everything ready. Did I mention it was also a slumber party? Yeah, with lots of teenagers – I felt like I needed some courage at the time.
The book page is from George Orwell’s 1984. It has been treated with Archival Mist that makes all paper acid free. It coats the paper with a buffer to neutralize acid. It is non-toxic, has no CFCs, no HCFCs, and no solvents. It will come double matted with an inner cream mat and outer tan mat measuring 14″ x 11″. Since it is matted to a standard size, it will be easy for you to find a frame of your choice when you decide to frame it.
