I have had a chance to examine the new books, The Princess Bride in particular____ On the back cover of this book, there was this sleeve, I wondered about what it was for at first, perhaps a bookmark? I would do fine for one. What it does do wonderfully is, it contains the first part of the book nicely which allows you to find the beginning of the story. Not unlike Ivanhoe which did not have this particular luxury. The choice there is to count or wade through the notorious 50 pages before you can find the real beginning of the adventure of Ivanhoe. The beginning is worth it in the end as it sets you up for the history behind the story. This is somewhat the author is doing in The Princess Bride. Once past the beginning of both books, they are a wonderful adventure. It does interest me that these books were set up this way. The assumption is something in those bits of the books there has to be worthwhile.

I live in Southern Maine. I am the owner of Anisette Studios. My website is https://www.anisettestudios.com/ Here you can view and purchase Shibui, sign up for my newsletters, blog, and read articles about Shibui Found Image Art. Patrons get great deals several times a year and special items at times. My site makes it easy to contact me. My primary art form is Shibui Found Image Art. Shibui begins with action art and stems from the imagination. It is like seeing something in the clouds or solving a puzzle. Its creative process has its own rules and requires what I call reverse engineering due to a lack of an understructure and purely out of the imagination. In addition to those who patron me, my target groups are those who use art therapy. I will soon be teaching live. Contact me if you would like to learn live. I use Zoom. I request that although my art, other images, and what I write is now published by me here on WordPress; I do ask you do not to use my artwork, poetry, or the information about Shibui Found Image Art without my permission. I am quite available to make such requests. I wish to share the following: The existentialist philosopher Simone de Beauvoir wrote a book called The Ethics of Ambiguity. In it, she lays out a guiding ethic in response to the philosophy of existentialism. It might be somewhat familiar to you already. She writes, “To will oneself free is also to will others free. This will is not an abstract formula. It points out to each person concrete action to be achieved.” Best wishes to all! Have good times and keep safe! PejjView all of Pejj Nunes's posts.
