Born in Greece, Pericles was a prominent statesman and orator. He promoted the arts and literature of the time. I enjoy looking for old books that no longer carry monetary value due to their condition and deconstructing them. By pulling a chapter from the book, refolding and rebinding, I bring new life to the story.
