"Don’t judge a book by its cover? NO! People judge books by their cover! They fucking do it. They MUST judge books by covers!!! I am a designer! That’s what we do! TO MAKE PEOPLE JUDGE AND INTERESTED BY THE COVER!"

my cousin, art student  (via thecaptainswanskiss)

As a librarian THIS IS SO TRUE. Good covers make or break books. Make it too feminine looking, a boy will never touch it (maybe you’re marketing to girls, but it seems like sometimes that’s cutting off a demographic depending on the book). Make it too dated looking or cheesy and NO ONE will touch it. Many a good book has been doomed by an ugly ass cover.

A book store owner and I were just talking about out facing books and how important that is the other day. You’ve got to flip the cover out to be visible because the cover is what makes you PICK THE BOOK UP.

Kili in three colours




papermachette:

Fili finally meets his new baby brother and he does not like him. Dis’ husband (Vili) is slightly concerned with his son’s behavior, but Dis reassures him that this is perfectly normal for a sibling to be jealous of a new baby. She tells him Frerin acted the same way when she was born. The only thing to remedy this is for Fili to hold his new brother. Vili sits his son on the bed and Kili is given to him. At first, Fili grimaces but when he looks down at his new brother, he just can’t quite dislike him anymore. This thing he is holding coos and snuggles closer to him and it completely melts his heart. He is so overwhelmed with these new emotions, he starts tearing up and begins to bawl, which causes Kili to cry as well. Vili comforts Fili while Dis comforts Kili, and they both laugh at how freaking adorable this whole situation is. The End.

I saw a fire moon once. It rose over the pass near Dunland. Huge! Red and gold it was, it filled the sky. We were an escort for some merchants from Ered Luin, they were trading in silverwork for furs. We took the Greenway south, keeping the mountain to our left, and then it appeared. This huge fire moon lighting our path. I wish I could show you…
