Paris 1995 zine

Star Wars Quotes zine

Eight pages of hand-lettered quotes from the Star Wars movies. I've been collecting mid-century lettering guides (mostly from the 1940s and 50s), and I thought it would be fun to use Star Wars quotes as a way to practice.

Read Like a Cat Sleeps zine
A framed portrait of Althea Warren would be very much at home in Leslie Knope’s office (if it weren’t for Knope's comic hatred of librarians). This biography tells the story of Warren's stellar career as: head of the San Diego Public Library, 1916–1925; president of the California Library Association, 1922; head of the Los Angeles Public Library, 1933–1947; director of a nationwide book drive for GIs in WWII; and president of the American Library Association, 1943–1944.
