Violet Blue’s new “Blogger” tattoo reminded me that I have to let you all know about this awesome Hanukkah present from my mother-in-law: a book of temporary tattoos for librarians. Check this out: “I Heart Dewey Decimal System!”
Here’s a close-up with my hair out of the way. Some of the other included illustrations for your favorite librarian are “Book Lust,” “Literate 4 Life,” and “Alas, Poor Yorick.” My favorite is a skull wielding an “overdue” stamp.
The book is titled “The Illustrated Librarian: 12 Temporary Tattoos for Librarians and Booklovers.” There is a real live Illustrated Librarian out there. But for those of us who don’t do pain very well, yet still want a little art, these are great fun. Mine came from Dark Carnival, but if you’re not near Berzerkeley, you can get them from Archie McPhee.
