dancing with galileo

About the Book
This work is about a love affair with my idea of Galileo. This heroic figure led me on a journey to find out who he was as a man. I went to places he lived and tried to find where he stood and what he saw. I read about him and some of his writings. The more I found out, the less I seemed to know. In the end, I still loved him but now as a human with flaws. I wanted to dance with him, but he left me dancing alone....
I teach photography, web design for artists and artist book classes at Northern Kentucky University and have been a working artist for over 40 years. I began making blurb books the first day I got a notice that blurb existed. Since then I have made quite a few for myself, gotten friends and family to make books, and use blurb when teaching my courses in artist bookmaking and photography and whenever I teach study abroad classes. Blurb democratized bookmaking for the rest of us and for that I am grateful. Thank you Eileen.
