#LillithJuly #TalkinBoutARevolution Posada was an incredible artist he did chapbooks , children‘s books, and oftentimes very political cartoons aimed at the working class.His distinct style ,a huge influence on Mexican art.Posada died in 1913 , so he didn‘t live to see the end of the Mexican Revolution, but he saw its beginning.

We, the Drowned | Carsten Jensen

Pics from Google

Denmark has 8.750km of coastline, and you are never more than 52km away from #thecoast, no matter where you are at. This book (which I haven‘t read) is set in a little coastal town on a small Danish Island, and tells the saga of four generations of men going out to sea, and the families they leave behind.


Mitch I loved this book... 👍🏼 5mo
KarenUK That cover is beautiful 😍💕 5mo
LeahBergen I‘ve had this book on my shelf for a couple of years now. 😬 5mo

Tamra The blurb sounds really interesting, though it‘s a chunkster of an investment. 5mo
BarbaraBB Great post! 5mo
Henrik_Madsen It is a chunkster but it is not a hard read. I absolutely loved it when I read it after it came out. (It is also a tale of two cities, one oreoccupied with farming and the land, the other one focused on the sea. Jensen sides with the mariners.) 5mo
Kalalalatja @Mitch @LeahBergen @Tamra @Henrik_Madsen I have wanted to read it for ages, but for some reason I keep forgetting about it. Good to know, it is worth it! 5mo
Cinfhen #pagecountphobia 😱😨but I‘m curious enough to think about it!!! 5mo

I read up on Rihanna‘s lyrics, and this book came to mind 💔

“When the sun shines, we shine together
Told you I'll be here forever
Said I'll always be your friend
Took an oath that I'm a stick it out 'til the end
Now that it's raining more than ever
Know that we still have each other
You can stand under my #umbrella
You can stand under my umbrella, ella, ella, eh, eh, eh”


Cinfhen Nice use of lyrics 🎶❤️ 5mo
KarenUK Clever..... loved this book 💕 5mo

Inspired by @erzascarletbookgasm I chose Charlie for the #BasketCase prompt. Charlie is an outsider, who does not fit into the mainstream groups at his school, because he is dealing with not-so-mainstream issues.


Cinfhen I almost choose Charlie too and this almost made my top 6 list!!!!!! 5mo
ruskigurl16 Ooh! How is the book? 5mo
Kalalalatja @ruskigurl16 it is amazing! One of my all time faves 👌 @Cinfhen I get it, it would have made my top 6 the year I read it 🙌 5mo
KarenUK Charlie! 😍😢💔 5mo

Invisible Cities | Italo Calvino
post image

#GetOuttheMap #LillithJuly
There are no maps for the cities Marco Polo describes to Kublai Khan in this dreamy, unconventional masterpiece. His tales of city after imaginary city are beautifully written, but also feel like philosophical mysteries to solve. Not sure what Calvino had in mind, but it felt like a struggle to grasp all the dichotomies the world gets split into, and what they share in common.
@KarenUK @Cinfhen

KarenUK What beautiful illustrations! Just gorgeous 😍😍😍 5mo
Cinfhen Strongly agree with my lovely cohost 💜 5mo
Billypar @KarenUK @Cinfhen They're from a box of postcards that we decided to hang on our wall- every now and then they find there way into a Litsy post (as is the case for most of our apartment 🙂). 5mo
