Libraries Are For Everyone: Japanese

Wendy, a delightful librarian in Munich, Germany reached out to me to see if she could help contribute even more languages for my images! One of her first contributions comes from a Japanese parent volunteer. And this is gonna be a pretty epic post because she gave me two options: one for public libraries, and one for school libraries. I didn’t want to choose between the two, so I’m doing both!

I also want to give a shout-out to Andrew Marshall at Penn State Greater Allegheny for making toner-saving super-awesome versions of all these signs. Download his pdfs here.

A NOTE: I am slowly working on getting my artwork uploaded onto the Wikimedia Commons for people to find it easier all the while making all of it “officially” licensed. That said – my entire blog here is under a Creative Commons Attribute/Share Alike license – so know that I both want and encourage everyone to download, share, modify, and have fun with my work!

I also want to reiterate what I’ve stated in the past since I can’t make it an exception within the license: I do not want my name (given or business) on my minimalist art. It sort of ruins the clean lines and elegance. Just don’t tell people that you’re the creator – I’m fine with you crediting it to “an awesome Punk Rock Book Jockey blogger” if you can’t recall either of my names. Or write by Hafuboti on the back in pencil if you’re worried about it. Seriously. Have fun.

I plan on putting this note on the bottom of all of my Libraries Are For Everyone posts so if you’ve read the above paragraph once, then you won’t need to again (unless you really want to).
