who knows what we like? Archie McPhee of course.

Folks who read this blog know that I rarely link to things for sale unless they are really special. This is one of those times. I only wish I had a birthday coming up. Please enjoy the Illustrated Librarian Temporary Tattoos.

Librarian stereotypes are as old and outdated as microfiche. Nowadays you’re just as likely to see your local librarian driving a Harley as a Honda Accord. This 3-1/2″ x 4-1/2″ hard-cover book contains twelve non-toxic temporary tattoos ranging in size from 1-1/2″ to 3-1/4″. Put one in a prominent place to prove once and for all that “smart” and “cool” are not mutually exclusive! Also great for bibliophiles and bookworms. All colors follow FDA cosmetic regulations.

[note: I drive a Honda Accord.]

    I was sadly unable to get to the actual Archie McPhee store during Midwinter, but I did find the tattoos for sale at the Seattle Public Library gift shop.

    They’re available at the New York Public library store too!

    My book club is made up librarians and the Illustrated Librarian Temporary Tattoos will be our prized group investment this year. As a side note, I ride a 1984 Harley FXRS in the summer and drive a 1998 Hyundai Accent in the winter. So go figure.

    And on the 8th day, God made Archie McPhee’s. Every year, I do all my Christmas Festivus shopping there. It is truly a national treasure.

    My personal favorite is “READ OR DIE.” Matter of fact, that would make a pretty good real tattoo…

    Now I have to work out if shipping to Australia is worth it, and where I’m going to put them admist the existing ink. Mind you, they’ll be fab presents for the lib-geek friends.

    I bought mine at the ALA store during midwinter. Haven’t worn any yet, but I expect they’ll make appearances at upcoming spring/summer conferences when my attire will lend itself to tattoos.
