Today's Inspiration: A Box of Sun

Yay! Yay! Yay! This was my first Pintauro book and the one that stole my heart (although next week's book is a close second!) A Box of Sun is summer's book, and how appropriate that right now, it is indeed summer!!!!! I could go on and on about this book. How perfectly it captures everything that is SUMMER. But, I'm getting to the point where I've said the word summer so much that its starting to sound funny and look like its spelled incorrect! So, we'll get on with the pictures!

It's too hard to comment on each individual photo. I love the pictures you decided to scan. There is the random burst of summer color, strange textures, sketchings, prints, patterns...it's all very lovely together. The grided bird, marked sun image, plant? close up, and paint splatter are great. Thank you for the morning eye candy!

oh thank you thank you thank you!

i chanced upon 'the magic box' [winter] several years ago at a big secondhand book sale, picked it up for a dollar and fell devastatingly in love with it. i'm so lucky i found it (or did it find me?) and so glad you've shared 'a box of sun' with us. i only wish the rest of the set would deliver itself to me like the beautifully melancholy winter did!
