Swapping books with Cheryl Penn - I got the long straw, again.

In a previous blog I celebrated Cheryl Penn's ability to curate.  She pairs imagery and words so deftly and through symmetry, or dissonance guides her viewer in understanding so they come to see differently and more widely.  This aesthetic and knowing is only one of Cheryl's qualities. She is also sure-footed, technically gifted and draws on a wide understanding of, well, maybe, everything!  

This book is a version, part of an edition of 10, one of which is going towards her hundreds of volumes of The Encyclopedia of Everything.  I am in awe at this piece.  It is truly beautiful and I will treasure it.  Read the Book!
