Therese Sennerholt – Penning Words…

Words – so innocent and powerless as they are, as standing in a dictionary, how potent for good and evil they become in the hands of one who knows how to combine them.”  ~ Nathaniel Hawthorne (American novelist and short story writer)

There is also an honesty and simplicity to her design, which I think makes it all the more engaging. The message doesn’t get lost in a rainbow of colours but rather is highlighted by the contrast of the black & white.

If you doubt the power of words to change ones day then you need to see “Historia de un letrero”  (The Story of a Sign) by Alonso Alvarez Barreda

Now tell me that doesn’t lift your heart and make you smile…
