    Speechless What a wonderful surprise it was to read about the remarkable American illustrator Mahlon Blaine This book is so well written and chalked full of Mahlon Blaine's illustrations making it that much of a pleasure to read I won this great book on GoodReads and typically pass them on to other to enjoy but this on will have to stay on my shelf so I can enjoy it again soon A big thanks to Roland Trenary
