|Star Wars Book by Rex|
In our 2003 letter we mentioned that Roger & Rex are enamored by Star Wars. Rex gave us a wonderful surprise gift at Christmas - a Star Wars book he authored and illustrated. He made up the story, typed it with help from his teachers for spelling, and did all the illustrations himself. This was a major effort - he told us it took about 10 days. A web version of the book doesn't do it justice as the original has fabric in several of the illustrations (which cannot be readily seen on the Internet) and Page 6 is particularly clever, featuring characters on a spring made of paper - this just appears as a shadow on the web page from the depth of the paper spring & the shadow it causes on the scanner. Also, the book itself was too big to fit into the scanner window (an A4 or letter size sheet) - the original bound book is about 13" x 10". However, in the interests of sharing here is Rex's Star Wars adventure.
