|Long Description||The wisdom of the wise and the experience of the ages are perpetuated by quotations." When I come across writing that really moves me and inspires me, my reaction is twofold. I want to share it with others and I want to draw something that is worthy of it. I love finding quotes that stop people-that really make them think. And I love the idea that my work, combined with meaningful words, can provide comfort or inspiration to someone." -Mary Engelbreit, from Artful Words Mary Engelbreit has made it her life's work to transform everyday objects-teapots and cottage roses, for example-into beautiful, sentimental icons. But what makes her art strike a chord with so many people worldwide is the substance behind the style. For Engelbreit, words and pictures have always gone together like the lyrics and melody of a great song. Perhaps the most common question the wildly popular artist hears is, Where do you get your ideas? Her latest collection, Artful Words , collects the best of Engelbreit's signature artwork, complemented by quotations, adages, and sayings and sprinkled with Mary's commentary and reminiscences about what inspires her. The book is organized into seven categories: * Love and Family * Friendship * Inspiration and Encouragement * Wisdom and Learning * Childhood * Holidays * Pure Mary Fans the world over can't seem to get enough of Engelbreit, so Artful Words is sure to become another instant classic.|

Code 128 is a high-density 1D barcode symbology. This barcode set makes use of the entire 128 ASCII characters which include letter, number and symbols.
As with all barcodes, there are indicators to identify where the barcode starts and stops. These are marked in yellow below. Code 128 also has a check character which has been marked in green. The remainder of the barcode is the data being encoded. The text below the barcode is optional and is for human consumption in the event the barcode can't be scanned or if people also need to know what the code means.
Each character in the barcode symbol is composed of three bars and three spaces. Each bar or space must range from 1-4 units and the sum of all the width of all bars must work out to an even number. The stop marker is special because it adds an extra bar of 2 units at the very end (4 bars and 3 spaces). There are three different start markers to to identify which code set is being used. To represent all 128 characters, the code sets can be within a single barcode as needed by using control characters 98-101 (depending on the code set).
The check character is calculated by summing the value of each character and multiplying it by its position. The start character is also part of the sum but is added without weight (multiply by 1 just like the first encoded data character) then when you have the sum take the modulo 103 remainder. This gets a little more complex when mixing modes within a single barcode.
