Gargoyles, fonts, and anachronism, oh my!

I read and loved Gail Carriger‘s Soulless almost a year ago now. I even read it on the subway, despite the fact that parts of the cover were bright, shocking pink! (Yes, it was still embarrassing. But totally worth it. It clashed with my hair. Oh, design woes.)

So, I was really excited to find this video on my internets (via @DelReySpectra):

And even more excited to find out that the next books were going to keep the awesome font, but not going to keep the colour which totally destroyed any chance I ever had of looking like a cool kid on the NYC subways.

Particularly, I snarfed my tea at 1:27, so watch out that you aren’t drinking when that comes up. (What do you mean, I should have put the warning before the video? Oops.) And if anyone can give me a gargoyle that looks like that I will love them forever. I would name it Fred and cuddle it. 

Feeling an intense desire to go reread Soulless now. Didn’t Changeless just come out? Must. Find.


Nina Lourie now has tea up her nose and is currently reading Spellwright by Blake Charlton, which is only fueling her gargoyle obsession.
