    An Inspirational Treasure!

    One of the recommended books in the last issue of the The Gleaner Art Zine(TheGleaner@aol.com) was Lynn Perella's Alphabetica... I anxiously awaited it's release, as I really like her work and I was BLOWN AWAY! It may be the best reference/source of inspiration I have on my art bookshelf! It is awesome, and I would highly recommend it to anyone interested in the altered arts.
