Happy New Year to one and all

Yesterday I received a late Christmas present, a copy of "Anathem" by Neal Stephenson. It's a book that's been on my wish list for a while, so it was wonderful to receive a copy from a dear friend. What I hadn't realised was just how big it is, close to 1000 pages.
Normally I read quite quickly and a paperback will last 2 or 3 nights, but I took one look at this tome and thought "I'm going to need a bookmark!" So, here it is and it also gives me something to post for the current Gothic Arches challenge too :)


  1. This is really gorgeous! Really nice work :)

  2. love it Nigel ! the clock within the arch looks ace !
