Our pop culture blogger Linda Holmes went to BookCon this past weekend, and she has some thoughts a fascinating and important cultural force: the Book Girls.

On the young end, they may only be 10 or 11; they remain demographically Book Girls at least through college. And they do, on a broad scale, seen in large groups, seem to emerge as a type that is in a sense unfair to all of them but feels like a weighted average: They dress for comfort; they pull their hair back. They move in groups, they drink iced coffee, they talk about podcasts, I secretly suspect as I eyeball their earbuds that all their music is playlists, and they read all the time. They have The Fault In Our Stars shirts that say “Okay” and “Okay” in word balloons, they are very glad Harry and Hermione never got together because that would have been terribly reductive, and they consider power and individuality to be topics for books that are at least as important as kissing.

I’ve said this before, but it bears repeating: I want to be Linda Holmes when I grow up.

Hi, so, I’m selling a dozen books. And before I take them to a used bookstore or just donate them, I thought I’d offer them to this lovely book-loving community first. The details… 

Books, books for sale. Advertising books for sale.

These graphics are amazing. Love them. I thoroughly enjoyed the movie The Grand Budapest Hotel. It was quirky, colourful and literary. Great movie!

⁂ Budapest Hotel Pattern ⁂
1-3 > artwork detail4 > original artwork: the entire pattern was created from this spread5 > full pattern, with just one horizontal repeat (each base unit of the pattern contains four variants of each image)6 > color palette, derived from characters and scenes
This pattern was created solely from memory after I saw the film. I have found that when I don’t use source images for illustrations they tend to be more imaginative, which seemed fitting for the theatrical nature of this story.
If you look closely at the full pattern, you will find several interesting variations of the images which allowed me to weave parts of the narrative into the art itself.
