Picturepalooza Contest
rating: +44+x

The Picturepalooza has ended, all the images have been rehomed (more or less), and the winners have emerged unscathed! Congratulations to:

See all the entries and the additional awards!

Everyone knows the Library for the vast array of texts in the shelves, but oft overlooked are the illustrations, tucked away on embossed hardcovers and in between pages. Pictures can be what brings a story to life — offering a visual to the mind's eye, letting patrons imagine ideas that they would otherwise never have seen. But in the Library, the pictures and pictographs that inhabit the books can have a mind of their own. They think, they speak, they have feelings and desires — and sometimes, they move. Every so often, pictures that are unhappy in their story of residence will elect to leave, hoping the legions of authors in the Library will be kind enough to craft them the new homes they desire. Of course, our generous Patrons are more than happy to oblige — aren't you?
