"In a hole in the ground there lived a hobbit. Not a nasty, dirty, wet hole, filled with the ends of worms and an oozy smell, nor yet a dry, bare, sandy hole with nothing in it to sit down on or to eat: it was a hobbit-hole, and that means comfort." The Hobbit
BOOK ART "A pair of skeletons perched on a coffin lid, clearly having a good time drinking, smoking and listening to music." This is one of ten "glorious little paper sculptures [left to be discovered in] libraries and museums all over Edinburgh, Scotland" in 2011. The mysterious artist/donor has yet to be discovered. Pretty cool!
