Illustration Friday: Trouble words of my mother rang out in my ears,
but I fear I was too late to see.

“You can eat the leaves, the sweet green leaves,
but beware of the scissor bird tree.”

Here is a new book that will never be at a fine bookstore near you. But for the first time you can see what you are missing. I have also included a spread from, InTrouble: A Cautionary Tale-the UnBook.

More UnBooks can bee seen at The Scott E Franson Gallery
