    This is a series by illustrator and graphic designer Jeca Martinez reimagining all the Harry Potter book covers as minimalistic animated GIFs. My favorite is the Prisoner of Azkaban. What's yours? Just kidding, I don't care. Yes I do. I just say things like that to protect... / Continue →

    This is a first edition copy of 'El Libro Que No Puede Esperar' (The Book That Can't Wait). It comes in an air-proof bag because, as soon as you open it, the book begins to react with light and oxygen until, two to four months later, all the words have faded from the pages. A... / Continue →
