Little list of Links: June

by Anna Blanch on June 18, 2010

It’s good to be back in the rhythm. I was away from St Andrews quite a but these last few months.

Another photography collection to share with you – this time from a friend of mine, Kevin Kelly. His flickr collection can be found here.

3 Most common uses of Irony – from Oatmeal Comics. Anyone quoting Alanis Morrisette in order to show how THAT song isn’t ironic is alright by me!

20 Interesting Things about Shakespeare – from Pioneer Woman, a pioneering blogger and homeschooling mom – great to see the Bard on such a high profile blog!

Amazing paper cut New World Map – by julie at famille summerbelle. Stunning! Creative!

A few weeks ago I shared Coralie Bickford-Smith’s beautiful new designs for penguin book covers, here are some elegant (and much more expensive) Leather Bound editions of some Penguin Books. You can find them at Bill Amberg. The collection consists of The Picture of Dorian Gray, A Room With A View, The Great Gatsby, The Big Sleep, Brideshead Revisited and Breakfast At Tiffany’s.

Now that i’m on a Pengiun kick – here are some teatowels and tote bags made from Printed designs of the old school block colour Penguin bookcovers! There’s also a Boardgame called Bookchase (they claim it’s the world’s first boardgame about books!) – i wouldn’t mind getting my hands on a copy of that!

Speaking of tote bags – which i was – here’s a collection of book themed tote bags from a variety of sources – stylish and bookish! fabulous! The site even mentions Project Runway’s Seth Aaron, so that makes it legit on the fashion front, right?

Now, for those Football fans, lego fans, fun fans, check this out for size – Germany v Australia (yes, i know we got thumped) highlights in lego. NB: the commentary is in german, but i think you’ll get the picture… (HT:JenW for this one)
