Ok, so technically it isn't my book mending desk, though I tend to think of it as mine. It's at the library where I volunteer, and chances are that if I'm not occupying that space, then someone else is.
But that's beside the point here.
|Where I mend books|
There are plenty of times that I've pulled out pen and pencil to note down the title of a book that I wanted to read, but I never felt the desire to pull out my camera until I met up with The Phantom of the Subway by Geronimo Stilton.
|Just look at it!!|
What surprised me is the font, which you can see on page one in the preceding photo. The publisher didn't just pick Times New Roman or whatever and run with it. Instead someone played with the font so that it becomes a part of the story telling. I don't think I've ever seen anything quite like it!
And it got me to thinking...this is one book where there would definitely be a loss if they turned it into an audio book. Font is a visual thing, and although you can do cool sound effects in audio books it just wouldn't be the same thing.
If you want to see more pages Amazon.com will let you look inside the book.
