I have taken the book path (cannot find a credit) They are stepping stones, so I love this image . . . but I don't want to literally walk on them.
Books lead you places. OK, is there any way I could make STEPPING STONES like this? I would SO love a BOOK-THEMED GARDEN!

Fifth Element $498,000.00 Alchemy of Manifestation: The Fifth Element is something that Lapulia has searched for most of her life, and now that she has found it and uncovered all that it means she has decided to preserve it within the pages of this Book: "The Fifth Element". About 14 months ago a Family of Private Collectors contacted Lapulia and commissioned a Book, but not just any book. What they commissioned is, put simply, a masterpiece. Within this Book is the combined knowledge of all of the great, ancient traditions written in an understandable format, including only the necessary information to create oneself in a fulfilling manner, in the image and likeness of the Creator. The quest to create the Book was not only interesting but enlightening and fulfilling. It was an experience that taught Lapulia so much. Regardless of tradition each teaching is trying to make us see the same thing, only it is hidden in different formats. To recognize what it is the great prophets of the past wanted us to know one must look through to the core of each teaching, using only an open heart and open mind. Then, and only then, will one realize that the path to a truly spectacular life, and existence, has been right in front of us. Only a soul who is completely willing to understand, and does not get lost in the maze of a particular teaching, will have the ability to rise up. Lapulia learned all of the great ancient teachings: Buddhism, Kabbalah, Hermetism, Hinduism, Paganism, the teachings of Jesus Christ, Moses' tablets, Solomon's scrolls, Matthew's texts, and Muhammad's writings. She then took all of the lessons she had learned and, having tested them, combined all of the most important, most vital and necessary ones within the pages of this Book. Within this process she discovered the Fifth Element. So what is the Fifth Element? Only 11 of these masterpieces are in existence: Three of them have already been sold to Private Collectors for the price of $498,000.00 each. Eight have become available, and only six will be sold to the public. The seventh will be auctioned off and all proceeds will go to a children's charity (the foundation will be announced a week prior to the auction). The eighth is planning to be donated to The New York Public Library. The Book is made at a size of 11"x14" with a weight of 18lbs, and bound in Italian black leather. The 498 pages are gold parchment. All texts, as well as artwork, have been kept within Lapulia's unique style. The binding of the Book is done by hand, in a Renaissance manner, using a centuries old technique. Only top quality diamonds, sapphires, rubies, and emeralds' set in 18 carat gold have been used on the cover to represent the four elements. A black Haitian pearl is set in the middle of the elements to represent the Fifth Element. The frame on the front of the Book is also made of 18 carat gold. The spine is about 3 inches thick featuring semi-precious stones (Peridot, Aquamarine, Carnelian, Amethyst, and Citrine) set in a vine of 18 carat gold.
