Come Walk In Gardens Of Delight reflects the author's belief that a profound sense of delight must be adopted if one is to achieve true wisdom. This book features hand-painted illustrations that are presented alongside corresponding examples of Change Notation, a method for enriching our understanding of change. Using Change Notation I am able to diagram changes in a thing's characteristics and position; even its interactions with other things. Many pages of this book include panels, which can be opened up to reveal additional imagery. This book was created using graphite pencil, colored pencils and acrylics on repurposed wallpaper and book materials. The book's hard cover, accordion style of binding allows for multiple pages to be displayed at one time.

Most of the time the artwork produced by Dr. Bob Pliny features pen and ink and fine brush detail applied on layers of loosely applied acrylic paint. Gold leaf is sometimes used as well. The substrate is either paper or wood. Both surfaces are smooth enough to draw on that I'm able to use dip pens with India ink or liquid acrylic.
