- Re-vision: New pictures for Close Your Eyes

When I did the first edition of the lullaby book, I printed photos of my daughters with Jace and Griffin on a commercial cotton cloth on an adhesive backing designed to go through the inkjet printer. The quality wasn't great, but the pictures were adequately recognizable.

Of course, after finishing Jace's book, I found an inkjet canvas that worked much better, so that was what I used for Griffin's book ...


It made the photo in Jace's book pale by comparison (literally), so I cut Jace's picture out, printed a new picture and slid it into the resulting hole ...


The resulting edge is a little wonky, but the picture quality is much better ...


And as Don pointed out, the whole book is wonky, so it all works.

wonky to me is more real...love is wonky, birth is for sure, songs sung and read too
Love is wonky. Nothing artificial about wonky ness

It's as real as real gets ... when big brother Jackson got a hold of it, he put it to his face and inhaled.
