Screen Captures: Minute Movies (01.20.20)
I am one of those people who was saved by books as a kid. Stories of other lives, other places, other kinds of relationships. I loved books so much as a kid I carried the ones I owned around in plastic baggies so nothing would happen to them. Today I still love books and linseed oiled every inch of these shelves so my books have a place to live. Goregous painting by Ryan Pierce visible in the back. Gorgeous shelves created by multi-talented Allan Wilson.
