Would you allow me to use the image of this book on a book cover I am doing for a friend? Your name would be in the book for the use of your image. I will not use it tough unless you give permission to do so. Thanks.

yup ... one of those things that you can ink and stamp on paper or in my case my covers. i like to draw designs and when it turns out nice, i'll take it to the rubber stamper to have it made into a stamp so i can use it over and over again :)
