I made this at work for an early edition hardcover copy of Animal Farm. It is the cover for a clamshell box. 
The black area with the pig image is all leather while the bright orange on the outside is dyed Tyvek. The pig and the titling were done by blind tooling the lines then dying them various colors.

sometimes I forget that Americans have to pay for university upfront like what the fuck is that are u guys ok

No we’re not okay. 

We’re not okay at all. 

I am so incredibly fortunate that I had someone in my life who was willing to mentor me and fund my college education. 

So many of my close friends are drastically in debt, my boyfriend is $30,000 in debt and his mom is even more in debt because of student loans. 

It is probably one of most significant, fundamental problems in the United States. A teenager must make this decision to be incredibly in debt in order to have any kind of “successful” future (at least by societal definitions), when they are at a point in their life that is utterly confusing. 

We create young adults with crippling debt who become bitter about their country. And then we wonder why there is so much discontent here. Something needs to change, and soon.

“We’re so bad at sex and then we wonder why women aren’t like, really aggressive about sex. We think it’s cause they don’t have as much desire as we do. That’s how stupid men are, that we think ‘they’re just weird, women are like fucked up in the head cause they don’t wanna just fuck all the time. If I was a women, I’d just fuck everybody. Why don’t they wanna fuck all the time? I do’. Of course you do, cause when you fuck, you get to fuck a woman! When she fucks, she has to fuck a guy! Wildly different experiences. For a man, 100% of the time, it’s the greatest thing that ever happened in his entire life. For a woman, about 40% of the time, when she’s being fucked by a guy, she’s thinking ‘I’ll get over this in a week. It’s not the worst thing. I’m not gonna cry this time’


“Another thing that proves how bad men are at sex is that after sex, you’re looking at two very different people. The man just wants to lay there, be cool and the woman wants to cuddle…’Why is she so NEEDY?’ She’s not needy you idiot, she’s horny, because you did nothing for her. YOU DID ABSOLUTELY NOTHING. HER PUSSY IS ON FIRE BECAUSE IT’S GONE UNFUCKED COMPLETELY. Of course you’re fine, you climbed on and went “KFHGSKG” and rolled off. And she’s on you because she’s like ‘WH-at SOMETHING ELSE HAS TO HAPPEN, THIS IS BULLSHIT!!” If you fuck a woman well, she will LEAVE YOU ALONE. ‘Thanks a lot buddy, zzzzz’”

Sometimes I just feel so alone. Not a unique thought. I am aware of this. 

It is not even that late at night, only a little tipsy. I’m in bed with my dogs and I just feel so… empty. I miss my friends that are far from me. My two closest ones that I know I can call at any time but its not the same. I miss them and I only feel us growing farther apart. Physically, not emotionally. Never emotionally. 

But distance is hard and some nights I want nothing more than to sit quietly next to each other while we both read out of different books. 

And some nights I wish for those I can never sit next to again. 

Sorry, tumblr. Just a lost soul reaching out for comfort, I suppose.

Freshman year of college, I took a dance class with my beautiful friend, Maddie. On our way home one evening, I stopped, and asked her if she wanted a kiss. She said she was seeing someone. I pulled out a Hershey and said ‘Oh. More chocolate for me!” Popped it in my mouth & ate it..

This is my best friend Justin. He is probably the most wonderful and generous person in the world. 
He also comes up with pretty genius pick-up lines.

“There are loving and intelligent Black boys sagging their pants, and there are hateful and ignorant ones in suits. We are taught to respect men, mostly White, in suits who commit atrocities everyday, but we have to demonize Black boys and men who sag their pants? And If we are really being honest, the suit has a far more violent, dangerous, and criminal past than sagged pants. Black boys and men who sag their pants have not come close to equaling the violence and criminality of White men in suits. It has never been about what Black people are, it has always been about what we are associated with, in this racist society, whether in a suit or sagging our pants.” The Anti-Intellect Blog (via sonofbaldwin)

David Donahue Restorations: My job and my lifelong dream

Alright guys, so I haven’t posted on here in about 4.2 million days and I’m sure most of my followers kind of forgot this blog even existed. HOWEVER this is because I have been working ridiculously hard at my book restoration studio. I have gone full-time and we are trying our best to promote the business as much as possible. 

The thing is, this has been my dream since I was in middle school and read Inkheart for the first time. I remember Meggie’s dad Mo being this incredible book doctor and having a studio in his house and how their house was just covered in piles of books. So, the fact that this dream has become a reality is almost too wonderful for me to believe it is actually happening. 

Not only is it happening, but I love it more than I thought I would. Each day holds a new thing for me to learn, a new book repair technique to tackle. And more importantly, I get to meet these truly special people who bring their books in to be fixed. It is not uncommon to have the customers stay longer than necessary because we get caught up exchanging our favorite books and authors. 

Anyways, we work quite hard at our studio and I don’t think I’m exaggerating when I say that our work is pretty spectacular. If any of you ever need a book fixed, no matter where you live in the states, just give us a call or shoot us an email. We do quotes for free and can give you a fairly decent idea just off of photos. 

Our webpage is: 
http://davidsrestorations.com/

And our newly created facebook page is: 

https://www.facebook.com/donahuesrestorations

Even if you don’t have a book that needs fixing, you should check out our pages and see what’s up.
