Notre-Dame de Paris (French for “Our Lady of Paris”), also known as Notre-Dame Cathedral or simply Notre-Dame, is a historic Roman Rite Catholic Marian cathedral on the eastern half of the Île de la Cité in the fourth arrondissement of Paris, France. The cathedral is widely considered to be one of the finest examples of French Gothic architecture and among the largest and most well-known church buildings in the world. The naturalism of its sculptures and stained glass are in contrast with earlier Romanesque architecture. [X] [X]

Jane Austen’s novels maintain a universally enduring appeal right up to this day and are loved both in print and as film and TV adaptations.

The aim for this updated set was to create a desirable look that would convey a modern and brave take on Austen’s traditional tales of love, family and status within society.

The illustrator of the series Leanne Shapton had this to say about her style:

"The nice thing about patterns is that they can evoke a certain mood or tone, but also be neutral. I loved creating a consistent handwritten label style for the six books and then thinking of which patterns might obliquely suit the titles. I think the patterns we chose quietly compliment and correspond to the stories. My favorite is Mansfield Park."

The full set comprising of Emma, Mansfield Park, Northanger Abbey, Persuasion, Pride and Prejudice and Sense and Sensibility are published this week.

[Shakespeare] loved words for their music as much as for their point; he was always intoxicated with the overtones of language.

# ask
Are there any other sports you follow besides football? Just curious because those sports posts were random for this blog.

I’m assuming you’re talking about the Fifa posts. No, I don’t really follow any sport in daily life, but when it comes time for International things like the Fifa World Cup and the Olympics it consumes my life. Countries crushing other countries = I’m there, watching the games, watching the commentary after the games, and I’m going to get a little obsessed and crazy until I see my favorites win.
