Live in a Story

You guys.

I’m so excited about this. You remember Arree Chung, right? The dude is a complete genius. He and a few friends started a company recently called Live in a Story, and the whole shebang is pretty brilliant.

Here I am in my Maxwell gear with one of Live in a Story’s wall decals.

(It was Halloween, not just another day in the library. Promise.)

(Also, more than one kid and more than one grownup have asked if that’s painted on the wall. That’s how beautiful these things are.)

People have been putting cheesy stickers on their walls forever. Let’s stop with that, ok? These are true works of art. Top-notch quality, seamless edges, and all of the texture you want from hand-painted detail. Picture book artists have a storytelling knack that can’t be contained in the pages. And why should they? As Live in a Story says, every wall is a blank canvas.

Want your decals personalized? Can do.

Kids deserve good art both in their shelves and on their walls, and Live in a Story is making it. Check it out:

Brian Won‘s owl is ridiculous, right? Well. Great news.

If you visit Live in a Story during the month of November and give them your email and address, they’ll give you this small and smart version of the owl decal. (It’s 8×10!) (That’s much, much easier than NaNoWriMo!)

Update: here’s the decal link straight from the source!

And! If you order more than $100 of wall decals, they are giving away signed copies of Ninja!, Hooray for Hat!, and Teeny Weeny Looks for His Mommy. (Stay tuned for news of this in a week or so. Consider this an exclusive sneak peek!)

Hooray for deals! Hooray for great news! Hooray for art!

(I think this calls for clicking Book Party up there.)

    These truly are gorgeous, and the texture makes them look painted on. I’d love to have something like this in a kids’ room or anywhere in the house that needed a touch of whimsy!
