At the back of the book, following December 31 page naturally, is a list of all the artists who participated with a very brief but informative note about each. Then to top off the experience, the inside of the front and back covers of the book list in calendar format the names of the artists responsible for each of the pages. It is informative and adds to the fine idea originated by David P Earle, 'an artist and writer who lives in Los Angeles, though his roots are in Chicago'.
History has given us many examples of The Book of Hours, such as the medieval illuminated manuscripts. There are also historic precedents for The Book of Days -'a miscellany of popular antiquities in connection with the calendar including anecdote, biography and history etc'. But important though these previous approaches have been, few provide the entertainment and insight as does THE OPEN DAYBOOK of David P. Earle. A great gift idea! Grady Harp, December 10
