Ex libris

“Books are a uniquely portable magic” 

Stephen King

(one of "pencillaneous" designs for ex libris) 


  1. This is a cool style of drawing Art! Another great pencillaneous.

  2. Yeah, Rod is right; let's see more of this style. It's great!

  3. Wonderful, whimsical pencillaneous portable perfection! And honoring one of my favorite things in the universe too.

    I do hope technology doesn't drive them out of existence!

    I was at the grocery store with a pile of library books yesterday & the (very young) checker said "Is there a library around here or something? People are always coming in with books!" Answer: "Um, yes, it is next door." *pang of dismay*

  4. @ rod: it is not cool style, I am cool!! ;) Thanks!

    @Ted : thank youuuu!!

    @ curious art : pang of dismay. I know where are you talking about. You are right. Some (young) people say they are reading literature. ( = Facebook and twitter) And they mean it seriously. A real "book" made of paper is old-fashioned, extinct THING.

    pang of dismay

  5. and dont forget about e-book application!

    call me old fashioned but i prefer reading a real book to reading an e-book.

  6. @ ill.poetry: yes, right, it is difficult to glue an ex libris into an e-book !

    Thanks for stopping by!

  7. This is incredible and belongs on a HUGE wall in the New York Public Library. Wow.
