"I would be quiet and enduring and as faceted as the night" 🌌💜💙 I gave ACOMAF a new cover 🙊🙊inspired by @charliebowater's Old Astronomer. And the Night Court, of course 😁 #acomaf #illustration #sarahjmaas #feyre #rhysand #goodreads #bookgasm #booksofinstagram #igreads #bookstagram #currentlyreading #nightcourt #prythian #bibliophile #booktography #booktube #painting #acotar #feyrhys #acourtofmistandfury #acrylicpainting
So, I did a thing. I painted my 'Throne of Glass' books. This action was completely inspired by @pink_lemonade_reads who recently drew some incredible art on her copy of ACOMAF. I watched Stephanie's youtube video where she talks about doing art on her books and ultimately thats what convinced me. In her video she said the thought of drawing on your book was terrifying. But, then she mentioned that this is your personal copy, why not fill it with personal things? Draw some art that you love on it? Make this your copy of the book, not only personal, but the only edition of it to exist. I thought that was an awesome way to look at it. I decided, what the hell! I've been a fan of the 'Throne of Glass' series since the first book was released, so I wanted to paint something that symbolised each book on its cover. Assassin's Blade: A masquerade mask and swords. The masquerade mask represents Celaena meeting Chaol and Dorian at the masquerade party and not knowing it. And the two swords represent Celaena and Sam. Throne of Glass: The Stag from the amulet of Orynth. Crown of Midnight: The Eye of Elena, from the necklace. Heir of Fire: A Hawk to represent Rowan's entrance into the story (because this is the only book I really love him in, sorry guys. He's okay in the others, thats just my opinion). Queen of Shadows: The Wyrdmarks. Empire of Storms: Goldryn the sword. I was utterly terrified about painting on the books, but I quickly became comfortable with it and Stephanie ( @pink_lemonade_reads ) is telling the truth when she says that its such a bizarre, freeing feeling. I will definitely add more to these in the future, but for now, this will do. And I'll definitely do this to other books too. Its so much fun! If I ever want to see the books in pristine condition again? I can go to a bookstore! Funny story, my mum thought these designs were printed on the covers till she felt the paint. Good sign, right? • If you get a chance, go check out @pink_lemonade_reads! Her art is gorgeous and she is an absolutely lovely and wonderful person. • So, would you guys ever do this to your books? Or do any of you guys already do it? Annotating your books counts!
I ❤️ this! @fearlessreads painted her naked copies of Alienated, Invaded, & United in scenes inspired by each book. So incredibly stunning! pic.twitter.com/lfOGucO46l— Melissa Landers (@Melissa_Landers) October 24, 2016
They are complete! I finished painting @melissalanders's Alienated series over the weekend, and couldn't be happier with how they turned out! 😁🖌 I took the risk of painting my personalized and signed copies, but it was completely worth it. Thanks for the inspiration @fictiontea & @pink_lemonade_reads! 😍📚 #alienated #melissalanders #books #bookstagram #bookworm #booklover #yabooks #yalit #yalovin #reading #amazingreads #bookporn #bookqueen #bookstagramfeature #bookishfeature #bookishfeatures #libraryofbookstagram
