Vintage books, many in none too good condition, line the shelf of an antique cupboard dating to the late 18th century.

Part of the now-restored and preserved Thankful Arnold House maintained by the Haddam Historical Society in Connecticut, the cupboard sits in a short (two steps or so) connection between the front parlor and the short stairway to the first floor bedroom.

Digital oils on a cracked-wood panel surface; from an original photograph shot June 12, 2010.

Tech specs: Photoshop 7, Filter Forge 3, Xero Clarity, Arkvis

    Can feel the texture…you are on a roll lately, lady!
    the original must be fabulous

  • It is a good picture, not as dramatic as the painted version, but the books are every bit as worn…:-),..thanks much for your lovely feedback.

    Looking at this one can feel the hands turning the pages down the years, just beautiful. Alma

  • I feel the same way, the ghosts of many walk in that house. Thank you.
