You guys, it’s summer, it’s Friday, and roughly half of publishing is on a plane to one of a small number of conferences/signings/events. So it seems best to go for happiness and joy for today’s blog post, right?
And what could be more pleasantly inane than Flavorwire’s slideshow of classic children’s books adapted to star Parks & Rec characters? The illustrations are by the clearly delightful Jennifer Lewis (@thisjenlewis). They all amused me, but I have to say #10 is definitely my favorite, and I let out an audible “HEE!” at #12.
Not a Parks & Rec fan? Then what about this Design Observer list of the UK’s best 50 book covers of 2012?
Covers not doing it for you, either? Well, there’s another mysterious book art sculpture in Edinburgh, says Abe Books.
And if that doesn’t fill your heart with joy, then I can only hope you’ve got Summer Fridays in your world and can take this afternoon to relax, read a book, and remember what happiness is. Happy weekend, everyone!
