Book Cover Potential XVIII: Taylor Curry's Camera-less Photos

This is one of those cases where I thought I found one thing that was awesome to blog about and it turned into an overwhelming situation of beautiful things.

As in, my friend posted a link to this Boooooom article on their friend and then I checked out Taylor Curry's website and I'm upset about not discovering it sooner.

Also, I want prints of everything.

I think you'll understand why these images are just made for book covers. Maybe even a series of book covers. First, "Feathers":

Also, "Fish":

You can see more work at

Heading to Alaska

My mom and I really love to travel together. This year, we're foregoing our usual trip to New Orleans for the Jazz & Heritage Festival and heading to Alaska in August instead.

I'm elated.

But I have no idea what to read to prep. Based on like five minutes of research I came up with this:

What are your suggestions—fiction, travel guide or otherwise?

BiblioCraft: A book for DIYers + readers

So, maybe because it is spring, or maybe because I"m moving soon and thinking about a new apartment, but I am in the mood to DIY.

In the past, I've been pretty anti-DIY. Like, let the pros do what they're good at and I'll pay them for something I know is great, instead of making a terrible Pinterest-fail type version.

But I found this Make Your Own Bitters Kit and after being inspired by this Brad Thomas Parsons book, I think I'm going to need to make a purchase.

Clearly, this DIY fever bleeds into my love for lit as well, making Jessica Pigza's BiblioCraft book a must for me to at least borrow from the library.

Here's a peak at the inside from Abrams Books:

A little FYI to go with this DIY, Pigza is a rare book librarian at the New York Public Library, which basically sounds like the most magical job of all time.

P.S. Remember that time the internet went NUTS when Lauren Conrad "assassinated" books to make a craft a billion other Pinteresters have created?

Apparently, they took the video down. Whatever. I'll always love you, LC.

maybe the greatest line from The Hills, ever. Since we're on the topic.

headed back home to Michigan in May. Can't wait to stop into City Bird to grab some of these notebooks.

the DUMBEST DIY Real Simple has ever posted (old book smell forever!)
