"gotham library" the first of my pieces for "modern vintage", my 2-man show with dave perillo at gallery 1988 east, opening on december 6, 2013.

I came across a set of Gotham Library cards on io9.com and wanted to share. Couldn’t find them on the artist’s page, but this library poster might actually be even better. Love the parallel between the books on one side and the tall buildings on the other. Click here to visit the artist Tom Whalen’s website.

The tenth - can you believe it, the tenth! - season of Supernatural* premieres tonight, so we thought we’d repost one of our very first book lists, last year’s Supernatural-themed flow chart starring some of our favorite YA fantasy and horror novels that would be perfect for fans of the show (or for anyone building a Halloween TBR)! Plus a few new additions that are nods to Supernatural's original Monster of the Week format. Enjoy! 

  • Anna Dressed in Blood, Kendare Blake
  • Unbreakable, Kami Garcia
  • The Demon’s Lexicon, Sarah Rees Brennan
  • Angelfall, Susan Ee 
  • Daughter of Smoke and Bone, Laini Taylor
  • Between the Devil and the Deep Blue Sea, April Tucholke

IT’S MENTAL ILLNESS AWARENESS WEEK.This week is Mental Illness Awareness Week. We decided to put together a list of YA novels featuring a variety of mental illnesses, from depression to multiple personality disorder. While some of these books are “issue” books - focusing on the mental illness and the subsequent effects - some are books that just happen to feature characters with mental illness.For obvious reasons, these books may be a trigger to those suffering from mental illnesses. If you feel depressed or feel an urge to self-harm, we encourage you to reach out to the people around you who care about you - or, if you don’t feel like that is an option, you can call 1-800-273-TALK (a 24-hour crisis hotline), 1-800-SUICIDE (a 24-hour suicide hotline), 1-800-334-HELP (a 24-hour self injury hotline) or contact any of these excellent resources.

13 Reasons Why by Jay Asher • Perfect Escape by Jennifer Brown • Pretty Girl-13 by Liz Doller • Something Like Normalby Trish Doller • Will Grayson, Will Grayson by John Green • OCD Love Story by Corey Ann Haydu • The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer by Michelle Hodkin • Impulse by Ellen Hopkins • Lexapros and Cons by Aaron Karo • Charm and Strange by Stephanie Kuehn • Zoe Letting Go by Nora Price • Scars by Cheryl Rainfield • Crazy by Amy Reed • Dr. Bird’s Advice for Sad Poets by Evan Roskos • The Unbound by Victoria Schwab • Freaks Like Us by Susan Vaught • Cracked by KM Walton

This month is National Bullying Prevention Month, so we’re reblogging our YA book list from last October, a collection of novels in which the characters deal with bullying (or, in a few cases, are the bullies themselves). 

And more books have debuted since we originally created this list, so don’t forget about these:

More books are featured on our Pinterest board, and on the NYPL’s excellent list, with even more titles, posted here.
