Dumpling does a drawing #4

The "head slumped onto looseleaf binder, while carefully avoiding impaling face on spine spikes" pose is standard when looseleafing.

An activity designed to shatter any illusions a librarian previously may have held about there being order and sense in the world.
The thing we do when we want reminded of the shortness and utter futility of human life.

Mini Christmas gifts

Or one with a secret compartment? There are even illustrated erotic mini books! You can theme by colour! Dollshouse insta-library (including 50 Shades of Grey, and the Hunger Games trilogies) Miniature haunted library Miniature Victorian library Still one of my favourites: themed mini
