My Butterfly (A Love Story) - $35
Written and Illustrated by Virginia Urani
“My Butterfly” is a unique and high-quality book which was self-published
by the author/artist, Virginia Urani. It is 7” x 7” with 26 pages printed on 80 lb. semi-matte finish paper.
It has a hard cover of Imagewrap which has a gloss finish.
In the book Virginia describes her experience with a pipevine swallowtail butterfly, and it is illustrated with her photographs and watercolor paintings. The paintings were all done from life, as the butterfly sipped nectar from flowers, napped on flower stems, and fluttered around her studio. Virginia not only wrote the story, but also selected the typestyle for the text and prepared the layouts. “My Butterfly” is completely her creation, and for that reason she signs each book. People frequently purchase the book as a gift for someone who loves butterflies, or a friend going through challenging times.
Each book is lovingly wrapped in tissue and packaged in a white, cardboard box for mailing.
