My Jar of Good Books is one of 200 small jars that will be on display in the Brooklyn Art Library! As you can see, the jar is a swirling pool of first lines from just a handful of great books. I also included some images of book covers, small printed illustrations I created myself, and even a match. In the center is a miniature poster with a quote from Harper Lee: “The book to read is not the one that thinks for you but the one which makes you think.”
I’ve already received from great feedback too!
