(click images for detail) For the better part of three decades multidisciplinary artist Guy Laramee has worked as a stage writer, director, composer, a fabricator of musical instruments, a singer, sculptor, painter and writer. Among his sculptural works are two incredible series of carved book landscapes and structures entitled Biblios and The Great Wall , where the dense pages of old books are excavated to reveal serene mountains, plateaus, and ancient structures. Of these works he says: So I carve landscapes out of books and I paint Romantic landscapes. Mountains of disused knowledge return to what they really are: mountains.

First sketch for the Last Supper c1495 This drawing is likely to be one of the first sketches executed by Leonardo in preparation for the Last Supper . The upper compositional sketch is a preliminary idea or primo pensiero drawing of the right hand side of the table, with about ten of the Apostles included. In front of the table, to the right of Christ, Judas can be seen leaning forward. Behind and above, a row of arcades has been sketched in freehand.
