Words Create Worlds

Ok, so I realise that I’ve been sharing a lot of things I’ve found on other people’s blogs recently and I’m afraid I’m about to do it yet again. As Laura Grace said a few post backs, though, wonder can never be spread around too much! And these gems I found via Reader’s Corner certainly are wonderful. Plus, I feel a special attachment to these since I googled them.

You see they’re from a promotional campaign called ‘Words Create Worlds’ by Anagram Bookshop in Prague. One of most favourite things in the whole world is spending an afternoon browsing a bloody good bookshop, and when I seen the images of the shop on their website I realised I had done just that in Anagram a few years back. I had forgotten all about it but now I even remember my friend bought me the most lovely wee copy of ‘The Little Prince’ there (thanks Anicka!). So I just want to thank KY for not only bringing these fantastic creations to my attention, but also for helping me recall a happy memory. Anyhow, without any further ado, here are said wonders.

p.s Please note, construction is ongoing in the whole makeover project. Just don’t expect any more changes this evening as, in true Donegal workman style, I’ve taken the day off to drink tea.

Roisin, can I just say that your blog is beginning to look 'pretty as peaches' (I picked that one up from an American woman's comments on one of my posts. Cute, eh?) Anyway, it's looking scrummy if nothing else.

And the pictures make me want to start writing fiction.

And you've been to Prague?! I have a good friend who lives in Prague. I've read Kafka. I want to go to Prague.

Roisin, I love the header! In fact, I like what you have done so far. This mint green is wonderful and definitely reminds me of your far away home. At least, it is far away from mine! Yep, I like it lots. I look forward to seeing what else you are about to do after your Donegal break! :-D

Big hugs,

I've been "quoted"! How special I feel! :-) I haven't seen these images before and I LOVE them. Especially the octopus! A little steampunk perhaps? I also think if the whole world were wise enough to embrace the Donegal workman style it would be a much happier place!

Aw, thanks you lot for your compliments on the new look. I was trying to put up a different background there but it’s not coming up quite right. Ah well, it’ll have to wait tomorrow ‘cause I forgot that I have to go out tonight.

JJ- yup, was in Prague for a wee visit a few years back. I’ve friends that live there myself. It’s a great city, but would probably only be my third favourite European capital. I haven’t visited them all, but I really doubt any city could ever top Rome for absolute awesomeness. But then I am a bit of a geek for that era in history.

These are amazing. I've been looking at 'book art' in art this year. Have a look at Su Blackwell too. You might like her x

Just checked her out Megan and I absolutely LOVE her stuff! Me thinks she might make an appearence in a post quite soon, with proper accreditation to you of course for pointing me in her direction :)
Thank you!
