Excellent F&J Quote

You raved and you bitched when you came home about the stupidity of audiences. The goddam ‘unskilled laughter’ coming from the fifth row. And that’s right, that’s right — God knows it’s depressing. I’m not saying it isn’t. But that’s none of your business, really. That’s none of your business, Franny. An artist’s only concern is to shoot for some kind of perfection, and on his own terms, not anyone else’s.


-Zooey, in J.D. Salinger’s Franny and Zooey


While looking for an image for this post I came across Siobhán Gallagher‘s blog which puts her excellent illustration and design work on display.  I wanted to give a proper shout-out to her so here goes: Keep up the great work, Siobhán. I’m looking forward to seeing your book designs in the future.
