The King of Nothing to Do

Yet another assortment of images and text with which to distract yourself from the crushing hopelessness of day to day living. Enjoy!

These posts are the result of record-breaking feats of procrastination. You may reach me at luiskatigbak at yahoo dot com.
Found a hardbound, half-century-old copy of childhood favorite The Wind in the Willows, with the Ernest Shepard illustrations, for under 50 pesos in a secondhand book shop!The one I had when I was growing up was a paperback edition (Signet, I believe), with Leslie Morrill illustrations. Very nice, but I always coveted the library’s hardback version with the Shepard drawings. And now I have one for myself. YAY :DMore Shepard drawings from the book here, as well as a nice insight or two: “From my own perspective, the beautifully written adventures of Mr Badger, Mole, Ratty and the inimitable and credulous Toad and their friends, although composed principally as a tale for youth, is equally suitable as a pleasant diversion or panacea for the blues in adulthood.”
