Readathon, First Update

Hour One of Dewey’s readathon:

Pages read: 138
Total pages read so far: 138
Time spent reading: 45 minutes
Total time so far: 45 minutes
Books read: Warren Dotz, Light of India, a conflagration of Indian matchbox art
Total number of books so far: 1

Although naive, perhaps, or even primitive by some standards, vintage Indian matchbox labels captivate with their unselfconscious charm, bold use of color, and often sly sense of humor. Today, they are valued as much for their culturally revealing subject matter as for their staggering variety and visual appeal and finally are taking their rightful place in India’s rich graphic design tradition.

    Feline: I feel almost guilty for “cheating” and starting with a book so full of art. Almost. 😉 My next one is taking a little longer!
