I checked my RSS feeds this morning, and discovered that I had been tagged by James Spinti in a little social-networking game.
Here are the rules:
- Pick up the nearest book of 123 pages or more (no cheating!)
- Find page 123
- Find the first five sentences
- Post the next three sentences
- Tag five people
The closest qualifying book was Icons by Robin Cormack, which I picked up while I was in Chicago observing at the AIA/APA convention. Page 123 gets us into the back of the book (a gorgeous, albeit slim volume) into a catalogue of the icons in the British Museum:
42. Icon with the Mother of God Tikhviniskaya, with metal revetment
Russian, eighteeth century. 36.4 x 31.1 cm
Bequeathed by Sir Frank Kenyon Roberts in 1998
Somehow, the description there seems wholly inadequate. So, I made a quick scan:
There, that's better.
