Blog run by Ellen, 19. Student at Oxford. Is currently limping through 'Finnegans Wake'.
This blog is mostly about James Joyce with smatterings of Ben Whishaw, William Morris, and the odd personal post.

I got a message from caratobe:

Hello there! I’m a follower of your tumblr (love it) and just thought that you might be interested in this project some dear friends of mine started. It’s called De Selby Press and it’s a new independent publishing house focusing on Irish writers. Their first publication will be none other than Joyce’s Dubliners illustrated by Stephen Crowe, of Wake in Progress (illustrating every page of Finnegans Wake)
They are in the final stages of their fundraising campaign and I thought that I would share it with you, and perhaps you can share with your followers. The link:
Thanks so much and hope you find this as cool as I do! :)

Yes, so cool! Would recommend you guys check it out. :)

Gotta Love Chapman Stickists

Well worth looking at the entire post!
