Book of the Day: MYTHOLOGY OF AN ABANDONED CITY by Jon J. Muth

“It’s the mythology
of an abandoned city

running away

from the true

and
the
pretty”

Gorgeous, haunting penciled art by Jon J Muth, and a dreamlike narrative makes this… essential.

I’ve been fortunate to see my share of museums around the world. While there are without doubt bigger museums, you’d be hard press to find a better museum than Walter’s Art Gallery in Baltimore, MD. It’s just something intimate, and embracing both in terms of its selection of items, and the gorgeous ornate old world styling of the building itself.

And today’s IMAGE OF THE DAY is one of the many standouts from my last visit to that museum. A sarcophagus dating back to the days of antiquity it is a gorgeous, large marble and ivory coffin, about 5 feet high, by 6 feet wide.

So if visiting the east coast, it’s worth a trip to this museum, to see this and many other marvels.
