5.0 out of 5 stars unique,different and special book by James Rumford 21 Oct 2012
By christine harris-amos - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
The book, From the Good Mountain by James Rumford is a beautifully written and illustrated book. It is a book that children and adults would enjoy reading.
The illustrations are beautifully done with such special details showing how the written word was developed by Gutenburg. You get accurate
information on how this was done and James Rumford made it interesting and informative. It gave the reader great knowledge about a very
important person in the book world, but made it fun and fascinating to read.The book had a unique way of teaching you about the written
word and Gutenburg.

I would highly recommend this book for adults and children. I hope James Rumford continues to illustrate and write
books like this for all of us to enjoy in the future.

5.0 out of 5 stars stunning and a pure joy 13 Dec 2012
By Basil - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
Every aspect of this book, from illustration to prose to font selection is a pure work of art. One is left in total awe, admiring not only the power of beauty and the beauty of this books, but so too the awesomeness of books as such. Most people do not know how much thought and care goes into creating a high quality book, and this is no exception. It is exceptionally executed and I hope it finds its way into many homes...it is a treasure worth reading over and again.

5.0 out of 5 stars Breathtakingly good 6 Feb 2013
By Kathleen A. Baxter - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover
This just stopped me cold, and I read hundreds of children's books every year. I would love to own one of these illustrations! It's an awe-inspiring, spectacularly good look at Gutenberg, with incredible illustrations. I made my husband read it and then he started explaining to me why it is so wonderful.
A treasure.

5.0 out of 5 stars an important story exquisitely presented 10 July 2013
By Susan Golden - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover
Others have mentioned the pure beauty of Rumford's illustrations, which he spent years on. I want to point how Gutenberg's invention truly opened up the world of knowledge outside the monastery and the royal palace for the first time. This is important for young students to know.This supremely creative book is mentally stimulating, showing every step of the processes mentioned in the text in painstaking detail and asking great questions of the reader. I could pore over these pictures for hours and keep learning new things. Amazing what a great "biography" Rumford has created considering how little is known about Gutenberg's life. A treat for all ages.
