Bookish art!

I know that the repurposing of books is a controversial topic for many, but personally I’m not averse to it if done in a way that appeals to me. And so here’s an eye-catching work of art made from books . . . which I like a lot! How about you? Would you have this in your house?

Inside scoop: Eloise!

There’s a little scene in The Worst Duke in the World which was inspired by this indelible scene from one of my favorite books of all time, Eloise. Even after all these years, it never fails to crack me up!

“Stop it at once, Eloise.”

Authors Adopt!

From the wonderful Julia Quinn:

“I’m thrilled and honored to partner with Penny Reid for Authors Adopt 2020, a program that aims to give autographed books to the medical workers who are working so selflessly to keep the rest of us safe during this crazy time.Photo: Julia Quinn for Authors Adopt

“If you are a medical worker and would like a FREE autographed book, sent to you directly from an author, click here to fill out this form.

“It’s a small but heartfelt way to say thank you.”

I’m equally thrilled and honored to be donating my books as part of this wonderful program. At last count, nearly 1,000 authors are participating!

If you’re a medical worker, please feel free to sign up. And if you know any medical workers who might be interested, please could you share? Thank you!

A miniature bookshop!

What is it about miniatures that’s so fascinating? I saw these photos on Andy West’s Twitter and was instantly enchanted. Just look at his magnificent handiwork!

“A real labour of love,” says Andy.

 

He says: “It’s a kit made by a company called Imagine3d — not much about them online. It took about 18 hrs, over a month and HUGE patience. You need to buy extra glue, craft knife, 3v batteries and scissors. It’s so tricky and SO rewarding!”

Rewarding indeed.
