A WEEKLY ROUNDUP OF INTERNET CURIOSITIES FROM THE BOOK WORLD

Porn
It's been a while since I posted some library porn. Here are "The 10 Most Beautiful Libraries in the United States" according to Mental Floss. Worth checking out for the Skywalker Ranch library.

Harbinger
What was the first book ever ordered on Amazon?

Stitched
How to bind your own books: a Pinterest tutorial. (The Internet really is all about self publishing these days.)

Sucker
A survey of Dracula covers down the decades, courtesy of Flavorwire.

Blower
Have you ever wanted to watch an accelerated video of a balloon artist using his "art" to convert his ...um...Jesus office? into Bilbo Bagins' Bag End? Neither have I.

Bests
Yes, it's that time of year again. List time. The NYTs offers a gallery of its take on the 10 best illustrated kids books for 2012.

Terrain
Not sure how I previously missed the astonishing book landscape sculptures by Guy Laramee.
