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).

 

Libraries Are for Everyone: Catalan

I was contacted by a language enthusiast named Sebastián Alarcón, who gave me four new translations to turn into LAFE signs. Up first is Catalan! Thank you so much, Sebastián!!!

Sheryl Stahl, the Library Director at the Los Angeles Hebrew Union College – Jewish Institute of Religion, reached out to me with the Yiddish translation of Libraries Are For Everyone. Thank you so much, Shery!!!

Epic Rainbow LAFE

A new Rainbow Libraries Are For Everyone design featuring 90 languages. Available at both Etsy (as a digital file), and Society6 (as wall art) | #LAFE Hafuboti.com

I know that I’ve been posting a lot lately, but it feels like my creative fire has reignited after a long time of smoke and ashes. Overall, I’m pretty optimistic that I’ll return to my more “normal” blogging here very soon. Until then, hopefully this will be the last post about me selling things for awhile. Thank you all for sticking with me – it means the world to me.

Yesterday a school librarian in a Facebook group requested this, and I loved the idea so much that I went to work on it immediately. And a day later, here it is! A rainbow version of Libraries Are For Everyone featuring 90 languages!!! 

A new Rainbow Libraries Are For Everyone design featuring 90 languages. Available at both Etsy (as a digital file), and Society6 (as wall art) | #LAFE Hafuboti.com

You can either get a digital file for $10 at my Etsy shop, or a high quality physical version (poster, art print, canvas) for various prices at my Society6 shop.

For those of you who are curious, the 90 languages are in alphabetical order by language name. And if you’re even more curious, here’s a list of those languages:

Afaan Oromo, Afrikaans, Albanian, Amharic, Arabic, Armenian, American Sign Language (ASL), Basque, Belarusian, Bengali, Bulgarian, Chickasaw, Chinese, Cree, Croatian, Czech, Danish, Dine Bizaad, Dutch, Esperanto, Farsi, Filipino, Finnish, French, Georgian, German, Greek, Haitian Creole, Hebrew, Hindi, Hmong, Hopi, Hul’qumi’num’, Hungarian, Icelandic, Indonesian, Irish, Italian, Japanese, Kannada, Karen, Khmer, Kiksht/Wasq’u, Kinyarwanda, Klingon, Korean, Kurdish, Latin, Lithuanian, Malay, Malayalam, Mandarin, Marathi, Marshallese, Nepalese, Norwegian, Ojibwe, Oriya, Pashto, Polish, Portuguese, Romanian, Russian, Sepedi, Serbian, Sinhalese, SiSwati, Somali, Southern Sotho, Spanish, Sugs’tun, Swahili, Swedish, Tagalog, Tamazight, Tamil, Teluga, Thai, Tigrinya, Turkish, Turkmen, Ukranian, Urdu, Uzbek, Vietnamese, Welsh, Wolof, Wôpanâak, Xhosa, and Zulu.

Rainbow LAFE

Recently I received a wave of requests for what I call the Rainbow version of my Libraries Are For Everyone design. This was something that I created to try and generate some revenue to help offset the cost of keeping my blog ad-free. Previously, you could only get the English rainbow version at my Society6 shop. But yesterday it occurred to me that I could use my dormant Etsy shop to sell the digital file. And why not have more languages available too?!

So that’s what I’ve done. I chose a handful of languages to get the rainbow treatment, and have the high-res digital files for sale at $5 each.

If you would like me to create and upload any other language, then don’t hesitate to ask here in the comments, email me at hafuboti@gmail.com, or through the Etsy convo system. For now I’m only posting a core dozen since it costs money to post products through Etsy and I’m trying to be as economical as possible.

And yes, if you download the image then you can use or modify it however you’d like.

Have a rainbow-filled day!!!
