Since then, she's sewed a velvet bag on a machine (a first for her), he's made a 3D-printed fidget spinner, and I've been mulling over what to put on a t-shirt, since they bought me one in my favorite shade of purple when they were getting theirs.
You can't get too elaborate, so after much hemming and hawing, I've decided my shirt will say "Books Take You Places" on the front, and on the back have a list of fictional settings, almost like a concert t-shirt. Something like:
Thisby Middle Earth
Ketterdam Red London
Only I'm a little worried I forgot someplace important. I decided to stick to fantasy/sci fi, because once I've added Green Gables and Camp Green Lake, I start wanting to include New York and Alaska and now we're no longer differentiating fiction from geography. But what about places I wouldn't want to visit, like Panem or Prentisstown? Hmm.
So we're going to take a survey. Yay! I love surveys. After you take the survey, I'll tell you which ones I already know I'm going to include for sure, but until then, let me know what settings you would definitely include on a shirt like this.
Okay, as to what I already know I want to include: Thisby, Ketterdam, Attolia, Ankh-Morpork, Earthsea, and Weep. I'm curious to see what you come up with!
I like that you have fictional cities, not just the world name. Missing Winter fell and Redwall, though. ;)ReplyDelete
I've actually never read Redwall, although my nephews were big fans when they were kids!Delete
So many great places! I love Hogwarts especially!ReplyDelete

How fun! I voted, but I don't know that my votes were very well thought-out, so they might not be helpful. I basically voted for places in books I loved and not for ones I hadn't really heard of. :-)ReplyDelete
Our library has a 3D printer as well, and we've yet to take advantage of it. We need to do that!
