Check out this adorable, delicate little walnut book! Made from nothing but a walnut and a ribbon, the book opens to reveal an accordion of tiny photographs of Maine. It appears to be a souvenir or memory book from someone’s trip. A charming and mysterious miniature!
Just made Wednesday cuter.
A book inside a walnut!
These would make adorable table settings for holiday parties or bookish weddings!

"Prologue is a series of fine teas inspired by literary classics. Each canister of loose leaves features a unique blend of flavors that characterizes the novel. The designs on the tins include motifs from the narratives and other elements that are a part of the reading experience."
I am a designer originally from Singapore, and am currently a Communication Design major at Parsons the New School for Design.
I love coming up with stories, making things, and making things happen, and I’m currently learning how to make things responsibly.

My birthday is coming up.
Our birthday just happened, but we hear it’ll be Christmas soon.
"My book in Times Square!! Thanks #brandedcities #cray"
Too crazy!! If you missed Alexa last night at powerHouse you can still meet her & get a signed book. Stop by Bookmarc (400 Bleecker St) at 6pm tonight!
Let the Text Message Fairy Godmother be your guide!
Here’s what to do:
1. Pre-order the book at Amazon or B&N or somewhere else.
2. Email a copy of the receipt or some proof of purchase at email@example.com
3. Include your phone number which I swear on everything beautiful in life I will never share or ever use beyond the 24 hour appearance of the Text Message Fairy Godmother. Let me know if you can receive images.
4. Receive three life-altering, profound pieces of advice from the TMFG, tailored just for you. Live happily ever after.
Only open for the next 24 hours, till 10/30 at 9pm. Then the TMFG disappears back to her magical Text Message Land.
Note: US phone numbers only. Outside the US, follow these instructions for messages from the slightly-less-exciting Email Fairy Godmother??
Note Two: This is a totally wacky idea I came up with and asked friends, “Do you think that would be fun?” And they said, “That sounds insane.” But somebody please actually do this so I can prove them wrong!
Try this insane thing, you guys!

There’s a secret library in the New York City subway
"…The underground branch lives outside the turnstiles at the 51st Street 6 stop, and it sounds like a sort of literacy-and-public-transit-themed Cheers. “You see the same people all the time,” patron Melissa Britt told the New York Times in 2010. “You can’t find this place unless someone tells you about it.” Another patron added, “If you don’t take the train, you’d probably never even know this place exists…”
