judging a book by it's cover

look at the most unremarkable book that i found in waterstones...
... classic books with blank covers so you can design them yourself. genius! have a look at the illustrations uploaded by some budding artists in the online gallery.

i love this idea and the creativity it could inspire. but a huge part of me would struggle to get past that feeling that drawing on books is seriously naughty. was it just me or as a child was writing more than your name in a book a crime? even now i struggle to under-line things in text books as i'd rather not "ruin" them.

perhaps i should treat myself to one of these as a kind of therapy! i love it when book shopping sounds medicinal!

i hope you're having a lovely week.

I used to struggle at underlining things on books, too. LOL. I think the best way is to use a highlighter pen, never a pencil or pen. ;)

that's a fab book! I collect the lime green penguin books but might have to expand my collection & go for these too, I expect my cover will stay blank though!
