A Book Is Proof…

This wonderful graphic paean to the printed book is the work of Australian freelance illustrator Gavin Aung Than. His entertaining and educational website, Zen Pencils, was launched earlier this year and was inspired by quotes from famous figures as diverse as Neil Gaiman and Rudyard Kipling. This cartoon was prompted by the Carl Sagan qoute, “A book is proof that humans are capable of working magic”.

  1. I love this! What a great way to express how books written long ago are still capable of affecting us today.

  2. Totally agree with this, books are a link to every historical moment of time.
