My mother liked the expression "much of a muchness," which means more of the same. So this new ruined book is more much of a muchness.
I loved the colors of W. Langdon Kihn's paintings from the 1950s, which then have a nice struggle with the electrical '80s colors of the Heidi reprint.
And then I kept at it.
Until I had done all the pages. That's always part of the charge.
More of these two books on the creaky shelf.
