Michael Palin goes to the library.
This made me think of you, ladyalatariel. :P
Happy birthday, Harry Potter!
To celebrate Harry’s birthday (and my undying love for the series), I made my own covers! I created patterns (Thanks for the inspiration Scandinavia!) using a significant object from each book. I used those in the movies as reference and digitally painted them. You can view the whole project here! :)
(It’s already July 31 here in the Philippines. Haha.)
I am deeply, deeply disappointed I cannot actually buy these.
Oh look, a series of pictures featuring two of my most favorite things!
BUY ANOTHER. IT MAY WEAR OUT.
Nothing can compare to books and writing while it’s raining.
Every time I see this I think to myself “You defaced a book? Hell no I’m not marrying you.”
Yeah, I feel that way too. Glad I’m not the only one. Though I really like those flowers I’ve seen made from books. I’m torn over those…
He could have gotten a blank box for a couple of dollars, photocopied the first page of the chapter, pasted it to the inside of the box, made the box look just like the book; without defacing the book.
#PRINTED BOOKS ARE NOT SACRED #THERE ARE MILLIONS OF THEM #I HAVE A LOT OF FEELS #ABOUT HOW PEOPLE WORSHIP THE PHYSICAL FORM OF BOOKS #AND NOT THE WORDS INSIDE #THE WORDS ARE THE IMPORTANT BIT #AND USING A BOOK FOR SOMETHING SWEET LIKE THIS ISN’T DEFACEMENT OF PROPERTY IF THE PERSON OWNS THE BOOK. BOOKS ARE UBIQUITOUS #AND HAVING WORKED IN A USED BOOKSTORE A LOT OF THEM GET TRASHED #AND NOT JUST CRAPPY BOOKS #GOOD ONES LIKE THIS ONE #I WOULD RATHER SOMEONE USE THIS FOR SOMETHING MEMORABLE LIKE THIS THAN GET TRASHED #DON’T JUDGE PEOPLE WHO TRY TO MAKE PRETTY THINGS WITH BOOKS #BOOKS CAN BE REPLACED AND ARE NOT INHERENTLY SACRED (via andrastesgrace)
Reblogging for the tags, basically. As long as the person proposing didn’t use MY copy of the book I would be good. :P
I must however admit to having feels for my own copies of books. I write in the margins, I put little smiley-faces next to paragraphs or sentences I particularly like. I store a lot of myself in my books.
I know it might sound a little preachy, but I honestly believe this.
These are brilliant!
‘Specially the “At Hogwarts, BRB” and the “In the Arena, BRB” ones!

I’ll take the lot! :D
Right now I’m reading a book on Greek mythology, “Death comes to Pemberley” by P.D. James, a biography about Leif Juster, “The Maltese Falcon” by Dashiell Hammet and “The Western Canon” by Harold Bloom. Make of it what you will. (I can’t make anything out of it. :P) And I’m not even listing the books I read for class.
