Amber pages:


Georges Braque, French cubist painter (apparently he put sand in the paint), born today in 
1882

Daphne Du Maurier, novelist ("The Birds"), born today in 1907.


Bruce Chatwin, auctioneer and valuer, occasional wordwright, born today in 
1940


A whole page that really belongs in Private Collection.



(For the info, the illustration is the famous black-and-white portrait of Braque, found on the Internet and saved as a jpg; then uploaded to Lunapic (but there are dozens of free software sites that will do this for you), and converted to the style they call "Picasso", which seemed to me entirely appropriate). Built-in algorithms did the rest.
