Borders bankruptcy filling was very shocking news to me last week and the news makes me worry about paper books' future at the same time. I love reading paperback books, children's books, magazines, newspapers, and any type of reading stuff made by papers. When I was a child, I stayed a library almost every day after school. I learned mountain climbing technic, ski technical method and names of flowers and trees all from books. I learned moral and human nature by masterpieces. When I saw those book in the book shelves, every single memories came across my mind. They are like trophies of my life.
With the appearance of e-book such as Kindle and Nook, paper books are in a tight squeeze. I am not interested in e-book at all, but I checked Nook at Barns and Noble yesterday. Well, I can read a children's book with illustration, which releves me as a person who wants to make a living with illustration, I can carry it easily, which is good for someone who always annoyed with stiff shoulders like me, and e-book can save many trees and change environment. But simply I hate it! It doesn't provide the smell of ink, it doesn't give me a freedom choosing a book from a book cover, and it doesn't have any texture that each books have. There are more reasons I hate e-book, but this is like emotional thing. Am I sounds wired?

Then, I made a illustration of the relationship between I and books! This is really personal piece!
