I’m guilty of picking this old book out of a dumpster. Who will throw out such greatness? Sigh!
A few lovely ways to keep track of where you had to leave the magic of your book.
This is my favourite. Should be very easy to replicate for the DIY savvy.
Perfect for the erotic short stories. Or for “The fast and the furious” novel edition, which I hope doesn’t exist!
There are people out there for which the trucker cap isn’t just the favourite headpiece of the 2002 hipster. People who take customizing to another level than just spray-painting their fixie bike in the same shade as their butt crack.
I found this magnificent book the same day as I found “Painted Ponies – American carousel art”. It was indeed my lucky day. I could easily post the entire book as it is pure awesomeness, but here are some selected features:
We are the robots.
I wish this was my livingroom.
So. Shiny. Can’t. See. Need. Trucker. Shades.
Paris Hilton of the road.
Airbrushing on acid. Indians & Aliens. Sounds like a really bad (or great?) B-movie.
This trucker wears more rings than I do!
I would like to be Valerie Philips. I just ordered this book by her:
… and I just love her wonderful pictures.
One day I ended up in a a second-hand bookshop – I don’t remember why. Maybe it started raining and I was in need of shelter? Maybe I saw an ex-boyfriend I needed to escape from? Anyways, I entered the store, and right in front of me I was greeted by this book: Painted Ponies – the history of american carousel art. I couldn’t believe it. This book contains everything I love: Ponies, fairgrounds, creepy atmosphere pictures and unnecessary knowledge. If there was a chapter about flourless chocolate cakes, It would be complete.
This man has written one of my favorite books, “The Hippopotamus” and been a part of so many other great things. To list a few: Jeeves in “Jeeves and Wooster” (loved it!), Blackadder, comic partner of Hugh Laurie in “A bit of Fry and Laurie“, made interesting documentaries, was in V for Vendetta, and is the host of QI, the best TV show ever. There is just way too many things to list them all here. This man is a pure genius. Smart, funny and terribly interesting. Most of all I really love when he’s narrating audiobooks! This man has been reading me to sleep for a long time now…
