These are a few of my favorite things… This week I was forced to empty my studio. (Not something one would do voluntarily) During the re-org I’ve decided to allocate a designated space for all those books that can not be re-shelved because I NEED them available, within reach, at all times. Hopefully this will free up my floor, corners, chairs, and light box; hopefully.
The list includes a bunch of books on History, Art History, Writing, and Fiction. So, as a tribute to facebook lists, here's a portion of my can't-put-away-books... this week.
The Bad Beginning - Book 1 of A Series of Unfortunate Events by Lemony Snicket (I Looooove the design of this book)
The Graveyard Book by Neil Gaiman and Dave Mckean
Mrs. Frisby and the Rats of Nimh by Robert C. O'Brien (all time favorite MG Novel)
