My night in a nutshell
personal significance mixed with chronological
Stacked for space, genre, alphabetical by author, special shelf for personal meaning. I don’t fuck around with my book organization.
Mine are sorted by theme; there’s a shelf for my collection of old books, a shelf for my massive collection of Holmesiana, a shelf for comics, a shelf for my Garth Nix (of which I have a great many), a (section of) a shelf for Tolkien etc. Within those sections things are just put wherever with the exception of the Holmesiana, which is chronological.
The manga collection, however, IS sorted alphabetically by title, as is the DVD collection.
People organize their books? er…um I mean I organize my books all the time.
L has all our books organized throughout the house by genre and then generally by author. And feigenbaumsworld, she will likely be so horrified by the thought of unorganized books that she’ll be on her way down as soon as she reads this.
This was a book cover I worked on with designer David Pearson for the Pushkin Press. I didn’t have a chance to read the book and only had about 5 days to do the cover, but it turned out nice. There were two rounds of sketches, the first ranging from snowy mountains, crystal formations, and winding paths; to the final round being narrowed down to just a snowy trail. The design also stipulated no figures and one color, but those kind of design constraints are helpful on a job with a tight deadline.
