Love in the Time of Cholera by Gabriel García Márquez - Nathania Vishnevsky Artist
Ok a confession - this was an early "plant" as someone had requested the book - but no worries, I've made several prints so I'll be able to supplement the 3 copies during the month. The print is from an awesome workshop by Pat Beaton on printing with foam.
I first read García Márquez in university and it's so interesting to re-read "Love in the Time of Cholera" now when I'm _ahem_ a bit older. The novel follows the characters from teenage puppy love to their elderly years and I definitely related to them differently this time around. I'm going to start taking notes while reading books because I would love to know exactly what the 19 year old me thought about this one.
Why asparagus? Read the book and find out!
