Bookshops & Artist: Rob Gonsalves.

Recently, I’ve found myself in a lot of bookshops.
Just passing the time really.
Glasgow has lots of great places for this.
Hours! I spend hours in these places.
It’s a good way to unwind from the day and that’s what I do.

I like to go in, pick up about 5 books or so then take a seat in between the old folks who spend their days that way too.
Anybody ever notice how many people actually sleep in book shops?
I do and it’s loads!
Heh heh – And why not.

Anyways, The other day I picked up a big glossy book about Optical Illusions and stumbled upon the great work of Canadian Artist Rob Gonsalves.
It’s a real treat!
