Libraries Are For Everyone: Klingon

I’ve said it before, and I’ll say it again: I will create signs for any language that you send me.

The wonderful Jessamyn reached out to @jenusellis to bring me a Klingon translation. And honestly, I’ve been looking forward to this one since it does good for my nerdy soul.

Then David Powicki, the Director of Technology Infrastructure and Systems Support at Mount Holyoke College shared an alternate translation.  After all, there’s no real Klingon word to imply a communal good for all, so the Klingon translation can be pretty tricky.

Thank you Jessamyn and @jenusellis!!!

Alternate Klingon

Thank you, David!!! Live long and prosper!

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).
