Remember book title art?





You really want to read the article that accompanies this photo: David Rosenberg's Slate article about Whimsical Stories Created by Book Titles.




Thanks to the delightful Brenda Buchanan 
my Crimebake pal for the link! 
Yet another reason I love Crimebake!

This is wonderful. Sparse, and strangely lyrical.

This is like poetry!

It makes me want to go into my home library and start rearranging books.

Completely off topic, but I thought you would appreciate this: http://i.imgur.com/ZwLtozI.gif As you squee with pleasure, just try to remember me when my query eventually gets to you.

Just curious... Is it me or has Janet been gone a long'ish time now, with no new posts...?

Janet Reid said...

Donna (and anyone else wondering), been down with the galloping crud for a while. Doing the on-fire, must-do stuff only. Back soon! Thanks for noticing!

:))

I figured something was up...I'm sorry you've been sick. Looking forward to you coming back...when you feel better!

Amanda Capper said...

Nasty, that galloping crud. But thanks for letting us know. Checked every day and was starting to worry.

Ms Reid,

*sigh of relief*

There's a lot of curative properties in wood cured alcohols.

I'm glad I wasn't the only one checking in and wondering/worrying. I hope you feel better soon, Janet!

Terri Coop said...

I'd send cupcakes, but saw on Twitter that even chocolate doesn't sound good right now. Feel better soon!

PS: In my off time between your posts, I've been rearranging the books at a local flea market.

I've been checking every single day and hoping Janet was not going to pull a Jessica or a Betsy on us.

Donna, so glad you mentioned something. I was going to to but frankly, as I have told Janet before, she scares the shit out of me.
Feel better soon, we miss your bubbling salt water mouth full of very sharp teeth self.

This is so interesting. Now I want to go play with all my books. :)
