Light without and within

If on a Tuesday afternoon, you wander lonely as a cloud (Jeez! An editor will clobber me for misappropriating a most Wordsworth-y line) and find yourself in this part of Baguio, don't forget to look at and out this window. The light appears to be focused on a heart-shaped and gigantic gabi leaf. That same light also generously illuminates what's inside Mt. Cloud Bookshop.

"Bul-ul Mirror Tricks," Del Tolentino's accordion book, sits backlighted on the window sill. The paper balloon and mobiles of origami birds unfailingly charm both repeat and first-time visitors. His solo book art exhibition, "Bric-a-Brac," is up until March 7. Ask the shop girl where Del's handmade books are. Photo by Babeth Lolarga
