Fan Art Tuesday: A Stunning Lightbringer Bookcase

Patrick Heffernan (of Mysterious Galaxy infamy) made this striking board and vinyl case that perfectly holds all five Lightbringer hardcover books.

The picture doesn’t do it justice!
In case you can’t see it, LIGHTBRINGER is the vertical word, and BRENT & WEEKS are the horizontal words.
Like a glove.

Not much else to say about this one, except well done, Patrick! He gave this one-of-a-kind case to Brent during his book tour stop in San Diego last year.

Ahhh, I remember book tour events… And bookstores… Book signings… Book festivals… Author speaking engagements… Browsing library stacks… Eyeballing tchotchkes and board games and socks at Powell’s… Lurking among the packed and crooked shelves that made the too-narrow aisles in my favorite used bookstore, petting the shop cat while I chatted with the staff, the smell of old paper lingering on my shirt after I left.

Sorry, I wandered off there.

Any way, hold fast and stay the course, friends. We’re all doing this quarantine thing for each other.
