Description:

An imaginary bookcase.

An imaginary bookcase with shelving space for horizontal and vertical stacking interspersed by carved bosses or decorative marquetry. The book titles are a mixture of the generic and the satirical and are sorted into groups by notional subject area. Eg "Literature" includes:

• Airship Up
• A Louse's Adventures In Sunderland
• The Complete Jitterjavelin
• Harmony Potter
• The Lady Of The Ringlets
• Of Mince And Me
• The Pitcher In The Rice
• Price And Perjury
• The Secret Gander
• Swifts And Mayans
• To Kill More Mimidae
• War On Peas
• The Wash In The Wallows
• Withering Haughts

This can be printed down to a 7½" repeat with the book titles still being readable.

sef says: This printed legibly even at half size (300 dpi, 7½" repeat). So there's plenty of scope for rescaling to suit different projects.

sef says: I still haven't listed all of the silly ones - just the section with the majority of them. The other sections each only have a couple of oddities among the banalities. I also wasn't sure how well it would show up on that floating close-up view thingummy - ie whether it would be necessary at all. But since no-one seemed to have noticed anything odd about the book titles ...

su_g says: Nice idea! Books arranged both ways and the marquetry were points of difference that made it stand out. Thank goodness you listed the titles - would have been too frustrating trying to make them out!

sef says: I think it would be rather expensive as gift wrapping from Spoonflower. You'd need a company which printed on cheap paper. Unless you're thinking of having reusable fabric wrapping (so it would just keep going round and round a social circle once bought).

sef says: Thanks, but I think you're somewhat alone in liking it. The viewing ratings suggest it's another dud. :-D <br><br>The marquetry was the only element from my long-standing todo list. I hadn't previously had plans to invent a bunch of silly book titles. Not that those show up very well in the views anyway. Perhaps I should have listed them separately, since it's something of a guessing game to recognise the originals.

inscribed_here says: This is very attractive, Sef. The marquetry nicely balances the blocks of coloured books. I like it.
