The Little Room

The Little Room.  It’s where we store our book making supplies and magic talismans.  It’s an untold treasure trove of bookbinding goodies, plastic dinnerware, and, of course, Johnathan Michael Gnorack.

Right now, our Little Room is very messy.  It’s so messy, in fact, that one cannot find anything, no matter how hard one looks.  Awls are in inkwells, paintbrushes are stuck to power drills, and it’s generally just in a terrible state of affairs.

THE MESS.

 

Thankfully, a few members of the staff volunteered to tidy the Little Room.  They tackled the hellish paper-scape and labelled as many despondent boxes as possible.  Ill-begotten, discarded bookbinding projects were filed away from sight.  The hand saw was separated from the dinnerware.  All the book board ended up in one place.  They even found a copy of “The Venetian’s Mistress.”

THE TIDINESS!

 

Even J.M.G. looks happier.

Well, okay, his expression doesn't really change all that much...
