How to Explain Amazon’s Kindle to Charles Dickens


As a student at Cardiff School of Art and Design, illustrator Rachel Walsh was asked to create a project that would explain something modern/internet-based to somebody who lived and died before 1900. 

Walsh’s innovative idea was to take a large book and create 40 miniature books from its pages in order to explain the kindle to Dickens. The covers are recreations from real books and include Dicken’s own novels, his favourite childhood books, and some of the artist’s own.

My Least Favorite Trope (and this post will include spoilers for The Lego Movie, Guardians of the Galaxy, The Matrix, Western Civilization, and—cod help me—Bulletproof Monk*.) is the thing where there’s an awesome, smart, wonderful, powerful female character who by all rights ought to be the Chosen One and the hero of the movie, who is tasked with taking care of some generally ineffectual male character who is, for reasons of wish fulfillment, actually the person the film focuses on. She mentors him, she teaches him, and she inevitably becomes his girlfriend… and he gets the job she wanted: he gets to be the Chosen One even though she’s obviously far more qualified. And all he has to do to get it and deserve it is Man Up and Take Responsibility.

And that’s it. Every god-damned time. The mere fact of naming the films above and naming the trope gives away the entire plot and character arc of every single movie.

She’s always going to compare herself to Scott…and her dad. Industry standards!

"Maybe if I set the jacket on fire"
ZATANNA NO

zatana:I’mma do the thing

"YOU CAN’T STOP ME DOING THE THING" 



Setting it on fire is definitely what Scott would do.

this cannot be an actual animal, it is too perfectly adorable. IT IS HIDING IN A BOOT.

This bun genuinely looks too soft and fluffy to be real O.O

I don’t usually comment on posts but FUN RANDOM DISNEY FACT : before Scar got his Scar (which was given to him by a wildebeest after an incident involving Mufasa) his name was Taka. He requested to be called Scar after this incident because he is a very over-dramatic lion as we already know! The source for this fact is from the Lion King novel series. 

Damn you learn something everyday.

EXCUSE ME THERE IS A LION KING NOVEL SERIES EXCUSE ME EXCUSE MEEEE

Another fun fact: I just looked it up and in Swahili, taka means garbage.

So their parents named them literally “King” and “Garbage” omfg that’s so awful xD

that’s so MEAN NO WONDER GARBAGE WANTED TO KILL HIS FAMILY

it’s like loki and thor all over again

ALL HAIL KING TRASH THE LION

No wonder he turned evil…seriously, Mufasa and Scar’s parents must have been MASSIVE jerks…

And then Mufasa already terrified of the power of the nominative determinism, named his own cub “lion”.

"Hey, lion what’s your name?"Oh, it’s “Lion” …my dad was scared of nominative determinism. "Wow… sorry kid."

I’m naming my future kids ‘Human’ just to be on the safe side O.O

Each one in a different language! It’ll be great!
