The Lord of the Rings is such an amazing story that takes the reader a journey of a lifetime. It was book that kept me company as I went through my teenage years and into adulthood. I still occasionally pick it up and read it, it is almost like a comfort blanket.
I truly love this photograph… the depth, the lines, the contrast, the lighting… all of them add to the intrigue of the words on the page and invite the viewer to enter the book to read more.
Thank you for the wonderful comment Graham! It truly is a wonderful book. I try to read it most years (no idea how many times I have read it now!). I love that you can find something new every time you read it.
I originally had the shot in colour as I was trying to show the gold leaf on the edges of the pages but decided it actually looked much better in b&w.

Books open new and often-times magical worlds for people. Literacy is so important. You’ve captured your love of reading beautifully….B&W somehow suits this image too. Well done!
Thank you Wendi! Yes I have been reading all of my life, so I can’t believe it’s taken me so long to actually mix my two passions and photograph some books!
Lovely shot. Absolutely stunning
Awesome perspective! Congrats on the feature!
Thanks! I’ve been really busy with work recently so only just found out this was even featured! Haha!
