The Power of Books – artwork by Mladen Penev

Artist Mladen Penev created a series of photographs in 2005 titled “The Power of Books” for the University of Applied Arts Vienna. The photos are striking, and a few make me feel good to look at. (A few I find a bit shocking in the violence, but perhaps they fit murder mystery books.) His series speaks to the way we can get absorbed in the world inside a book.

About Cheryl Rainfield

I write the books I needed and couldn't find as a teen. I write teen fiction--paranormal fantasy and gritty realistic fiction. I'm the author of SCARS (WestSide Books, 2010) #1 ALA QuickPicks, and Governor General Literary Award Finalist, HUNTED (WestSide Books, Oct 2011), STAINED (Harcourt, 2013), The Last Dragon (HIP Books, Sept 2009), and Walking Both Sides (HIP Books, 2011). I also enjoy drawing, surfing the web, connecting with people I like, doing crafts, and being with my dog.
