enLIGHTEN Edinburgh 2012

This looks like a fun, pretty, and literary project: taking famous quotes from the Scottish Enlightenment, and projecting them onto the Edinburgh buildings associated with that period, with animations and audio too. It'll run from the 1st - 18th March 2012.

The Edinburgh City of Literature site says there's further news to come, but as it starts in only a few days, I'd quite like to actually know just now what quotes they'll be using, and when, and where...it'd be quite nice to go for a walk around town to see them, but without details, it's a bit tricky to plan!

Ah, actually: the non-official source is, in this case, more reliable than the official source! It goes against all Librarian Rules, but here: - trust the unofficial source, for full information on locations, dates, and times:

Edinburgh Reporter event details - although they say it launches on Friday 1st March...Friday's the 2nd. Does anyone actually know what's going on with this event?

P.S. Maybe someone at the Edinburgh City of Literature site could...perhaps....y'know...UPDATE IT?

Library words

Putting words about libraries and books onto posters is very popular, so there's all sorts of options out there. These items are here because they have a quote or slogan about libraries or books printed on them. There's one quote in particular that seems to be a favourite of poster makers: see if you can spot which one it is.... Library bird (ok, it's a magnet, but hey...)

Mini Christmas gifts

Miniature things are one of my favourites, and miniature books are no exception. These tiny books are available either as volumes or sets of volumes on their own, or as parts of dolls house or in specialised miniature library settings. And some of the miniature libraries are just insanely good! I've not included here the many options of wearable miniature books - earrings, necklaces, bracelets, badges... A book with its own drawer for safekeeping Mini clay books Decorative mini books Ghosts in the library books Not exactly miniature, but very small "Little Leather Library" collection How about a Medieval illuminated book, in miniature? Or one with a secret compartment? There are even illustrated erotic mini books! You can theme by colour!
