Happy #MiniatureMonday and Martin Luther King Jr. Day!
In honor of the holiday, here is Bonnie Thompson Norman’s miniature artist’s book A PRIMER FOR DEMOCRACY. This book was created in a class in Seattle, Washington, with participants Dawn Endean, Patricia Halsell, Kaylea Trowbridge, and Elizabeth Walters. Each cardboard card has either a quote, a letter from the alphabet with corresponding terms, statements, or is left blank. Each card also has notches so the reader can create their own structure out of the cards.

I really wish that one day there will be a human-acted (that's a word, I promise) film of Howl's Moving Castle, loyal to the book.
my dearest anon…..you have no idea how MUCH I wish for that too…… It’s one of my biggest dreams and I’m not even ashamed XD
The thing is, I don’t even need the movie to follow the exact plot from the book, I just want it to get the humour and the characters & their dynamics right, really.
Of course no movie can ever be as good as this book, but I still want it to happen…. I want to make videos out of it lol.
But really all these recent live action remakes of old movies (like Cinderella, Beauty & the Beast and all that) make me think of the possibility…. just imagine….. HMC film that is loyal to the book……. sassy ginger/red gold haired Sophie….. drunk Welsh Howl……. (all. the. sass.) kinda-scary Calcifer…….. teenage Michael…… all the potential–
Basically I’d die of happiness if it ever happened in my lifetime.
I will always teach you how to love yourself no matter what. I will teach you how to smile, and truly be happy. I will teach you that it is okay to cry, but also how to stand up even taller than before. I will love you no matter what. You’ll learn to ignore what society expects from you as a woman and live your life how you want to.
I’ve stopped being sorry for all my soft. I won’t apologise because I miss you, or because I said it, or because I text you first, or again. I think everyone spends too much time trying to close themselves off. I don’t want to be cool or indifferent, I want to be honest. If I love you at 5AM, I’d damn well rather that you know I felt it. If I love you two hours later, I’ll tell you then too. Listen, I won’t wait double the time it takes for you to text me back because I don’t want to. I don’t care enough to be patient with you. I’m happy, you made me feel that way, don’t you want to know? So that’s how it’s going to be. I’m going to leave myself as open as a church door. And I’m going to wake you up before the crack of dawn to tell you that I’m fucking joyful, no pretending, not from me, not ever. Would you like some coffee, would you please kiss me? Here, these are my hands, this is my mouth, it is all yours.
