    A Reading Room for One

    For the 2013 Lisbon Architecture Triennale artist Marta Wengorovius teamed with architect Francisco Aires Mateus to produce this little slice of paradise; a reading cabin for one.     

    The simple wood structure is fit for one person, holds one bookshelf and has a raised seating area and that’s it. It is light by a skylight.

    The artist populated the bookshelf by asking 20 guests to choose three books each for the library.

    "Sharing this itinerant project creates a community between people who read the books, the guests who chose the books and the people who will read the books wherever the cabin shall pass," says Wengorovius.

    The project had its first opening on December 2012 in Paredes, north of Portugal. The library is scheduled to be in a different place each year. If exhibited in a foreign country the books will be translated and available in the native language of the country.

    imagine a dragon who hoarded librarians and every so often knights come to rescue them and the librarians get very upset because the dragon is quiet and reshelves everything neatly and the knights are Very Annoying

    Yes please?

    This is wonderful, assuming the dragon also shelves things correctly. Lord knows that the knights wouldn’t.

  6. I lose interest when I get ignored.

    Unknown (via doansie)

    It always amazes me the number of people who play games by trying to manipulate people to care about them more through ignoring them.

    It’s like they never graduated junior high…

    I mean, it doesn’t even make sense. If someone starts ignoring you, is your reaction to care about them more? I guess I might, but I’m also going to do my best not to show it because clearly they don’t care what I think.

    Medieval rockstar

    The last page of a medieval book is usually a protective flyleaf, which is positioned between the actual text and the bookbinding. It was usually left blank and it therefore often filled up with pen trials, notes, doodles, or drawings. This addition I encountered today and it is not what you’d expect: a full-on drawing of a maiden playing the lute, which she holds just like a guitar. A peaceful smile shines on her face. I love this rockstar lady, so unexpectedly positioned at the end of the book, trying to catch the reader’s attention as he is closing it.
