Inspiration: World Book Day

Today (7th March) is World Book Day. A whole day dedicated to my first true love, reading.

I thought I’d celebrate by finding some book-related inspiration from around the interwebs. I wasn’t short of choice, I can tell you.

I love these House of Ismay brooches, they do them in other shapes for plenty of other books too, but To Kill a Mockingbird is one of my favourites.

A beautiful quote which fits so well with the faded tones of vintage Penguin paperbacks (I grew up with shelves full of these)

Tea & books print

Is there any better combination than tea and books? They’re celebrated perfectly in this print by What Katie Does

Miniature Book Bracelet Stack of 3 Mini Books and Leather Bracelet Red Gold

These handmade miniature books on a bracelet are so sweet

These typographical designs for Penguin classics by Jessica Hische are just divine

French novel paper heart garland, party, wedding, decoration

It seems a shame to cut up books, but I guess if there’s one you don’t like you could make a pretty book garland like this one.

There is plenty of bookshelf perfection like this on bookshelfporn.com – hours of gazing longingly!


What more could a girl want? I can’t find the original source for this, but found it here

And finally, a pictures of yours truly (circa four years ago) in the best bookshelf/shop I ever found. It was in a horsebox in a junkyard on the east coast of Scotland. I could have spent hours in there. In fact I probably did.

What are you reading at the moment? I’d love some recommendations.
