I have enjoyed reading Jeff Smith's BONE GNs for some time, especially after Scholastic produced them with 4 color illustrations. Now we have BONE HANDBOOK (Scholastic 2010) which will answer any and all questions about how the books came into existence, why they were reissued, how the story was crafted, etc. Interviews with Jeff Smith and the colorist, Steve Hamker, are also included. There is a glossary, original cover art from the first issues and a make it and take it rat creature as bonus material, too. <343>
Spent some time today emptying two of the bookcases in preparation for the construction of NEW ones in a week. It looks so strange, an empty bookcase. I cannot recall seeing one empty for a long time. Now that the heavy lifting is done, it is time to lift another book and see if I can diminish the stacks that are now relocated into other rooms.
