"Prologue is a series of fine teas inspired by literary classics. Each canister of loose leaves features a unique blend of flavors that characterizes the novel. The designs on the tins include motifs from the narratives and other elements that are a part of the reading experience."

I am a designer originally from Singapore, and am currently a Communication Design major at Parsons the New School for Design.

I love coming up with stories, making things, and making things happen, and I’m currently learning how to make things responsibly.

Tea blends based on books - what could be better?

“I was reading.”
“You’re always reading. The only way people can ever talk to you is to interrupt.”
“Then maybe they shouldn’t talk to me.”

The Alnwick Poison Garden is pretty much what you’d think it is: a garden full of plants that can kill you (among many other things). Some of the plants are so dangerous that they have to be kept behind bars. [x]

Real poison garden - complete with plants so dangerous they are locked away

Has a book changed your life?


bookporn:

I bet at least one has.

There’s a wonderful blog that wants you to share that story: Books That Changed Me

Because literature is a fundamental part of our lives. It shapes us, makes us better humans, fills our souls and lifts our spirits.

This is a lovely way to share with others how the world or words has transformed this other world.

You can read about how to submit your stories here.

On either side the river lieLong fields of barley and of rye,That clothe the wold and meet the sky;And thro’ the field the road runs by           To many-tower’d Camelot;And up and down the people go,Gazing where the lilies blowRound an island there below,           The island of Shalott.


Lady of Shallot reading should always b this glam

On either side the river lie
Long fields of barley and of rye,
That clothe the wold and meet the sky;
And thro’ the field the road runs by
           To many-tower’d Camelot;
And up and down the people go,
Gazing where the lilies blow
Round an island there below,
           The island of Shalott.
