No long preamble, except to say I keep looking at this in close-up views because I’m madly in love with the pencil textures.
This is not a specific scene from the book, and yet it encapsulates the book so very well. Look at her down there, my Tess, small, strong, and stubborn, staring back at the abyss.
The abyss is going to blink first.
Edited to add: Of course, like a doofus, I forgot to mention it’s available for pre-order from your local indy bookstore. Likewise, there are lots of different on-line pre-order options at Underlined and, for Canadians, there’s Indigo.
