    My grandmother was an artist and spent her last days in the hospital, sketching a book of courtroom sketch artist style work of the Watergate Hearings, which were on TV, in her room. This book was her last artistic work, thus it has a very special place in my heart.

    The work gets more and more intricate as her requests for more materials were fulfilled.

    This book contains over 120 pages. Here are 4 of the pages.

    As with much of my collected paper, this special historical document was handed down to me.

      Appreciate the comments all!

      Grandma would be satisfied knowing her work was seen and appreciated. This is a scanning project I've been meaning to do for some time now. I'm a little more than half way done.

      The original scans are tiff format, uncompressed at 800dpi, so hi rez for sure.
