Okay, so I know you haven’t really missed me since Jordana’s been doing a fine job keeping up with the White Wednesday content for me while I took a momentary leave. Well, I just adore this blog and I really couldn’t stay away any longer- soÂ hereÂ I am and soÂ happy to be inÂ white again.
This weekÂ I’d like to share with you these fantastic silhouettes blown up asÂ novel posters from over at NovelPoster:
Can you identify the classic novels based on their illustrated outlines? (answers below)
TheÂ elegantÂ posters are a nice an’ easy $30 a pop and would spice up any space, butÂ probably best in that cozy spot for curling up with a good ol’ classic.
Novel posters featured, clockwise from top right: Nineteen Eighty-Four, Adventures of Huckleberry Finn, Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland, Ragtime, and The Great Gatsby.
If I can’t brag about my friend’s amazing accomplishments here, where can I do it?
I know these books* have little, well, actually nothing, to do with design but they’re written by friends of mine and they have all worked so hard to get them published. I just had to share them with White Cabana readers.
Jeff Gadsden is my amazingly talented brother-in-law who recently published these flash cards to help anesthesiologists study for their exams. This is hot off the press – the book “dropped” just last week! Hooray!
Anesthesiology Oral Board Flash Cards by Jeff Gadsden & Dean Jones
My friend Tonya Davidson’s book, exploring sociological issues, officially launched last week but I had a sneak peek a couple of months ago. So exciting!

My life is surrounded by books – lots and lots of books – at home, at work, in the car, in my purse. My current bookshelves are overflowing and piles of books are gathering on the floor here and there around my apartment. Oh, how I dream of shelves like theseÂ to houseÂ my growing collection of books.
