Nice series of shots, Karen. Along the same theme, there's this one which She has hung up in her office. We got it from the Library of Congress. The LOC dates it to between 1890 to 1920, and the only note on the original is "son reading the Bible to his parents".

Rat! he found breath to whisper, shaking. Are you afraid?
Afraid? murmured the Rat, his eyes shining with unutterable love.
Afraid! Of Him? O, never, never! And yet -- and yet -- O, Mole, I am afraid!
Then the two animals, crouching to the earth, bowed their heads and did worship.

That's a wonderful image, Sven. I looked further, and here's the whole gallery from Magnum Photos where Slate got its pictures: 60 Years of Books
