(If you’re new, welcome to Inklings Week 2016! Today is another fabulous guest post from my friend Wesley! Don’t miss any of the posts this week, you can find them here.)
Hi everyone! I’m Wesley and I blog over at Library Educated. When Jamie asked me if I wanted in on Inklings Week I could not say yes fast enough! I’ve been a C.S. Lewis fan for a long time but have come to appreciate J.R.R.’s thorough world building and vast landscapes!
I think that it is fair to say that the people who love the books of C.S. Lewis and J.R.R. Tolkien are a fairly rabid bunch (maybe not like, One Direction fan base type of rabid, but I think that that’s okay). People have expressed their love of these books in all types of ways: tattoos, art, reimagined book covers, things that I MUST HAVE on Etsy, and of course – memes.
It’s hard not to be inspired by the books even before you open the books up and dive into their stories, look at some of these covers!
And my personal favorite of the Tolkien group:
Did you know there was a Queen who illustrated Lord of the Rings? Yeah! Check it out!
And onto some of my favorite CS Lewis covers (many from the same editions):
(You guys, this whole post could be made up of “Not all who wander are lost” tattoos for the Tolkien end of things. We will keep it to one.)
And for Mr. Lewis:
Any my favorite, random funny things on the internet (everyone’s favorite really, right?)
I so so so so hope this conversation happened
Ring ding ding ding ding ding ding!
And a Narnia – X-Men crossover? Yes please!
When you wish upon a scary floating eye…..
So basically my Inklings Week post was me messing around on the internet for hours and I couldn’t be more grateful to Jamie for the opportunity!
Yay!! Thanks so much for joining in Wesley – this was so much fun to read (lots of laughs too!). So y’all have a favorite from Wesley’s post?
