Deck the halls with…erm…pictures of books?

Yes, it’s (almost*) the last of my library-gift themed blog posts, and it’s time to look at the walls. Those bare, booooooring library walls. Surely the librarian in your life would like a bit of art on them to perk them up a bit?

How about the traditional approach, of some books? Painted, drawn, cut out, coloured in: there’s books aplenty for those walls:

Shop (I’m a bit scared by the fact the desk and chairs seem to be levitating….)
Shop
Shop (this one features a traditional library favourite – the cat. It’s also available with a dog)
Shop (I’m not sure if they’re burning, or melting)
Shop (not the most restful of library images, that’s for sure)
Shop

Hell, maybe you just want a photo of books, never mind all this arty-farty stuff:

Shop

Perhaps an image of an unusual mode of transport for bringing library books back would fit in with the decor nicely?

Shop

Or another library inhabitant?

Shop (this is the only type of bookworm I want to see in my library!)

Or how about an even more librarish image: the image of a library itself?

Shop

Although perhaps you prefer your libraries to look….spooky?

Shop

Quotes about books and reading often go down well too:

Shop
Shop
Shop (hey, what about the other librarians?)
Shop
Shop

Or maybe you’d like images where the librarian themselves feature?

Shop

Even if they’re not in human form:

Shop
Shop
Shop (All librarians are angels. Fact.)

Perhaps a bit of humour would be appreciated?

Or, a linocut of a cosy, comfy looking sort of library to settle down in for a good read:

Shop

But, my vote for “the best thing to put on a library wall” is…an entire, miniature library. This one is on the theme of that traditional librarian favourite: cats.

Shop (subliminal message – BUY ME IT!)

* Still to come – a hodgepodge of random library-related stuff that I’ve found since the previous posts.
