Getting the most out of "An Illustrated Life"

For Christmas I received a copy of Danny Gregory's An Illustrated Life it was a wonderful surprise ( from me to me)- -
It is a beautiful and fascinating book but I don't want to miss a thing - I followed Winna Jill's advice to getting the most out of every page

That is very very cool Kathleen. I love things like what you've done. I draw cartoons for the papers now and then. this looks like fun I think I might have to give that a go.

Take care

PS I haven't actually read Danny Gregory. I'll do some digging and find out more about him

Very cool journal page, Kathleen. I've been reading An Illustrated Life in bed at night, and have had difficulty seeing all the little pages and print. The magnifying glass is a good idea. I'm also spending some time visiting each artist's websites, which show up nice and big on my computer screen.

Of course this makes me laugh out loud! What a wonderful redition! Very expert and I'm so happy I didn't miss seeing it.

Fabulous pages! It seems like a lot of us are using the old magnifying glass to take it all in!

Have been reading lots of good reviews about this book. Can't wait for my copy to arrive.

Magnifying glass. Wow. Talk about looking for details.
