An artist is a dreamer consenting to dream of the actual world. - George Santayana
Ruben Toledo's cover illustrations almost make me want to read these crashing bores. ("...if all else remained, and he were annihilated, the universe would turn to a mighty stranger..." Rubbish.)
Oh, what spellbinding phantasmagoria he could work with a Flannery O'Connor book cover!
Tangentially, Ruben and his wife Isabel have the coolest apartment ever. It's like a cross between the Mad Hatter's tea party and the disjecta membra of Salvador Dali.
(Huzzahs for Genna -- who has the best blog ever -- for inspiring this post!)
