The Penguin Book by Dave3of4 The Penguin Book by Dave3of4
This is an artist book of a realy cute story that my awsome boy friend jerry realy realy loves. The text inside is..

Roy and Silo, two chinstrap penguins at the Central Park Zoo
in Manhattan, are completely devoted to each other. For nearly six years
now, they have been inseparable. They exhibit what in penguin parlance is
called "ecstatic behavior": That is, they entwine their necks, they
vocalize to each other, they have sex. Silo and Roy are, to
anthropomorphize a bit, gay penguins.
When offered female companionship, they have adamantly refused it. And the
females aren't interested in them, either.
At one time, the two seemed so desperate to incubate an egg together that
they put a rock in their nest and sat on it, keeping it warm in the folds
of their abdomens, said their chief keeper, Rob Gramzay. Finally, he gave
them a fertile egg that needed care to hatch. Things went perfectly, and a
chick, Tango, was born.
For the next 2 1/2 months they raised Tango, keeping her warm and feeding
her food from their beaks until she could go out into the world on her
own. Gramzay is full of praise. "They did a great job," he said.


My boy friend loves this story so much that when my pal lauren, aka digimonkey, sent me an e-mail with the story in it i had to make a super cute book out of it for him. So i did, and this is the end result. It is printed on Bristol paper and is bound in the japanese side sew fashion. It is so cute and everyone loves it.

I will also be willing to sell people copys of this book for 10 bucks, if you want one jsut drop me a note. OK? cool!

This is so cute. I was just thinking recently, whose gallery I had seen bound books in, and I'm guessing that it must have been yours, they're really cool. I love making books too, and the side stitched method is my favourite.

That's a cute story too, if penguins can do it, there's hope for us all! :D

Awww that is so cute. It's funny, because that's not the first time I've heard that story in the last little while. My friend told me it. It's so adorable.
