I follow this page on Facebook called StreetArt in Germany and that’s where I stumbled upon the photo of this painting. It’s a shame really that the artist is Unknown.
I was immediately drawn to this photo mainly because it’s a painting of books. I love to read and I can never have too many books. I simply love the feel of a book in my hands, the smell of its pages. The very fact that I’m physically involved in the turning of its pages is something that can’t be experienced with an e-reader or while reading on either your computer, laptop, iPad or any other electronic medium – any reader or book lover can tell you that.
The photograph of the paining above, to me, is a gentle reminder to the younger generation of what they’re actually missing and how lucky I am to have experienced this feeling.
