Happy almost New Year everybody!

And welcome to your Friday Links.

» bookdedications

“Or, put simply, a load of dedications I’ve found written inside second-hand books.”
The blogger, Wayne Gooderham, wrote a pretty interesting article for the Guardian about it too. Great stuff.

Artist Carrie M. Becker transforms a Barbie-sized environment into… well… a mess. 🙂 All done miniature-size. Actually very impressive, and disturbing.

An ingenious little website.
It’s actually recommended some interesting places to me. Well done.

Also: some of the comments during play are really funny.
