Castles and Fairies (Which I Shall Deem Sufficiently Kidlit Enough)
Work has been monumental this week. Through the roof. Stuff upon stuff upon work upon stuff. Your poor little Fuse #8 blog is tired and I'm just not finding the links I need. I guess I can keep pulling out some reviews if worst comes to worst.
That said, this is neat. A little background first, though. All you really need to know are two facts about me:
#1: I think Faeries of Dreamdark: Blackbringer is the finest fantasy title I've seen in a long long time.
#2: I used to work at the Jefferson Market Branch of the New York Public Library System. I'm a touch fanatical about it, truth be told. Look at it:
What word comes to mind? Castle. Friggin' Greenwich Village castle. It was actually a courthouse once, but to my mind it'll always be a fortress.
Right. So you've established both Fact #1 and Fact #2 squarely in your cranium, yes? Well not long ago I received some links to these bizarre Urban Fairy Doors. Cute, huh? Yeah, so I'm not all airy-fairy normally, but I appreciate fine craftwork and some of these are pretty sweet. Then I see one that says Jefferson Market on it and my heart does this little pitter-pat.
Well, suffice it to say, they weren't talking about MY Jefferson Market. Lackaday. However, the Jefferson Market they are discussing seems to have enough innate drama in and of itself.
Thanks to author Sara Holmes for the links.
