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: Pashto

Here’s the Pashto translation provided by the generous Muhammad Jamal.

Thank you, Muhammad Jamal, for this translation!

Libraries Are For Everyone: Albanian

Several months ago I received this Albanian translation, and the sender was incredibly gracious when I told her that I was overwhelmed with work. So a HUGE thank you to the librarian who waited (which makes me want Doctor Who to have a librarian companion), and to her library page who provided the translation!!!

#LAFE B&W Bookmarks

The magnificent Megan in Illinois wrote me last week to share what her library’s done with my designs. And after I finished squeeeeing, I read the rest of her email. In it she asked if I would make my Libraries Are For Everyone bookmarks in black and white.

About a week later: Voila! An option for those of you who aren’t allowed to print lots of colorful things for whatever reason!

And like everything I publish on Hafuboti, please feel free to use these and modify them in any way. Also know that if you click on either of the sets you can get a pdf to download. Have fun!
