I love bookshelves, and stacks of books, spines, typography, and the feel of pages between my fingertips. I love bookmarks, and old bindings, and stars in margins next to beautiful passages. I love exuberant underlinings that recall to me a swoon of language-love from a long-ago reading, something I hoped to remember. I love book plates, and inscriptions in gifts from loved ones, I love author signatures, and I love books sitting around reminding me of them, being present in my life, being. I love books. Not just for what they contain. I love them as objects too, as ever-present reminders of what they contain, and because they are beautiful. They are one of my favorite things in life, really at the tiptop of the list, easily my favorite inanimate things in existence, and … I am just not cottoning on to this idea of making them … not exist anymore. Making them cease to take up space in the world, in my life? No, please do not take away the physical reality of my books.

E se Pocahontas, Bela, Esmeralda e outras famosas personagens da Disney trocassem de sexo? Bem graças a Sakimi Chan nós já podemos ver isso. A artista imaginou como seriam algumas princesas e outras personagens da Disney se fossem homens e, no caso dos personagens  Jack de “O Estranho Mundo de Jack” e Hades de “Hércules” o contrário também aconteceu e eles foram transformados em personagens femininos. As ilustrações ficaram bem legais!
