This book is decorated with scenes of “The Island,” as Fanny calls the Isle of Wight, much to the amusement of Miss Lee, Maria and Julia. Original seascapes in acrylic, painted by artist Linda Dennery on the front and back boards of a second volume to an 1854 reprinting of William Cowper’s poetry. This stray volume was lovingly salvaged and repaired by the artist before being used as a canvas for her expressive artwork. This is book art in every sense of that phrase!
