At long last, the TFiOS audiobook is now available in a brand new THIRD EDITION!!!

This set includes:
- Six CDs of John Green reading The Fault in Our Stars, because his voice perfectly emulates that of a 16 year old girl.
- A wristband for The Hectic Glow, a band so beautifully underground that they don’t even exist. (bright orange, different from those received in 1st and 2nd edition box sets)
- An awesome concert ticket for The Hectic Glow, a concert so epic that it never technically occurred.
- Four TFiOS-themed postcards designed by nerdfighters that you can send to your friend to brag that you own the John Green-narrated audiobook and they don’t.
- Three TFiOS-themed stickers, designed by the ever-talented Risa Rodil.
- A set of four TFiOS buttons, also designed by Risa (did we mention how talented she is?)
- Also, all 3,000 copies are–get this–UNSIGNED.

We are super excited to be able to bring this to you, and we hope you love it as much as we do. =)

Brighten it up

That’s what Risa Rodil designer and typographer from Manila, Phillipines does with our day. Her type of art revolves around nice colored typography and retro illustrations. Inspired by fonts and vectors she designs awesome illustrations and some of her favourite artists are Tom Whalen, Cyril Rolando, Jessica Hische and Pascal Campion. We love her work because it takes us in a fantasy world next to the grey business days. Enjoy!

Despite new covers being commissioned for the Harry Potter series, fan artists have done their own minimalist interpretations of the covers.

However, some of the covers are somewhat spoilery.  Some people dislike when minimalist covers are focused on the “spoiler” aspects of the story - which someone not familiar with the series would have any connection to.  I’m personally, neutral with regards to that.

Meet Risa Rodil: Initiate and DIVERGENT COLLECTOR’S EDITION Contributing Artist

Name: Risa Rodil

Why did you start creating art for Divergent?
After I read the book, I got so attached to the story and the characters that I felt the need to channel my obsession into something creative. I wanted to pay homage to the book by creating designs that may hopefully draw other people to read it as well.

What drew you to this fandom?
I’d say Tumblr and the fandom itself. The dedication of the Divergent community is truly inspiring. It is one of the most supportive fandoms I ever had the pleasure to be part of. And I owe that to Tumblr for introducing me to this community in the first place.

What was your process for creating art for the Divergent Collector’s Edition like?
It was totally fun because I found an excuse to revisit the series. Both of the quotations I chose to design are very Tris-centric. I wanted to accurately capture her character in the designs, so a huge part of my process involves a lot of rereading my favorite chapters. I injected a few references from the book that I hope everyone gets to enjoy!

How does it feel to have your art included in the Divergent Collector’s Edition?
It feels like a dream! I can’t believe there will ever come a time that I’ll get to work on something official for the series. As a huge fan of Divergent, this whole thing is completely surreal for me. And I’m extremely grateful to have been granted an opportunity this big.

How does the Divergent Series inspire you?
The main essence of the story and its messages about bravery, sacrifice, and self-worth are enough to give me all the inspiration I need. The books did a brilliant job in getting those messages across and I always hope to mirror that brilliance into each of the pieces I create.
