Let us all just take a moment to appreciate how beautiful the 2012 hardcover edition of Neil Gaiman’s Stardust is. Not only is it one of my favorite books and a lovely tale, but the design of the book is gorgeous and fits the story perfectly. And look at those new Charles Vess illustrations! The most beautiful book currently on my bookshelf in terms of design. And what an experience to hold and interact with this beauty. This is why paper books will never disappear.
yes. This copy is amazing. My boyfriend got it for me last Christmas, and I was overjoyed ^^
in this book I’m reading from the 80s, the personification of Death and all that is Evil is described, from one character’s perspective, as a young, red-haired businessman.
so I was looking at my books for next semester, and I’m really not happy with my course schedule. I’ve got to take another history of design class, along with portfolio, even though everyone told me to take capstone first, but I can’t take capstone because I’m a peer mentor and the LSIC I’m tutoring is during that time. also during that time is a CSCI class I wanted to take for my minor, which I’m not sure I can complete in the spring semester. I guess all I’ll be doing in the fall is graphic design and all I’ll be doing in the spring is computer stuff and trying not to die.
also on my list of things to freak out about: graduation next may.

the solution is ipa, obviously
yes but do I just look up every word I’ve ever learned through writing that way? Besides, I’ll never remember.
Yup. The only word I can think of off the top of my head is demesnes. I don’t even know how I would have pronounced it, but it’s said like “demain”
