Book Cover Beauty

Oh, Walden. If you have not had the chance to read this classic novel yet, it is a must. I call it the “original beach read.” Although Thoreau heads to a lake, and not the ocean, this meditative work will take you out of the hustle and bustle for just a second. This illustration is the book’s original title page, illustrated by Thoreau’s sister Sophia. The detail of this intricate line drawing is impeccable, capturing the simpleness of Thoreau’s time at Walden Pond.
