“Of course anyone who truly loves books buys more of them than he or she can hope to read in one fleeting lifetime. A good book, resting unopened in its slot on a shelf, full of majestic potentiality, is the most comforting sort of intellectual wallpaper.” David Quammen
Sorry, I just love Luna. And the Quibbler. I mean, seriously...Quibbler! It doesn't get better than that, man.
Little fairy houses made from old fairy tale books, tucked into the shelves with the rest....oooh, what fun that could be! A combination of altered art books, miniatures, and fairy and gnome sculptures from polyclay, with natural elements to make house details....
"Very well. I'll go. But there's one thing I jolly well mean to say first. I didn't believe in Magic till today. I see now it's real. Well if it is, I suppose all the old fairy tales are more or less true. And you're simply a wicked, cruel magician like the ones in the stories. Well, I've never read a story in which people of that sort weren't paid out in the end, and I bet you will be. And serve you right."
