Aaron Diaz ( creator of Dresden Codak and my favourite LoZ au ) says things. 

I feel like this bears repeating and in bold:

You can’t cite the rules of a fictional world to defend something problematic, because a person made it up.  That person is accountable.

I feel this so much when people try to make excuses for authors who write terrible bisexual characters or whose writing is full of bi erasure, bi tropes, or conspicuously missing the b-word.

Book Conservator Nobuo Okano Repairs Tattered Books to Make Them Look Brand New

by Johnny Strategy

For the past 33 years Japanese craftsman Okano Nobuo has been repairing tattered books and reconstituting them to look brand new. When a customer brought in an old Japanese-English dictionary that looked like it had been through a few wars, Okano approached it like an art conservationist repairing a painting. Using very basic tools like a wooden press, chisel, water and glue, Okano reconstituted the book to make it look like it was just purchased.

The tedious job required Okano to take each page—all 1000 of them—and flatten out all the creases with tweezers and an iron. But not everything is repaired. Okano makes some things disappear, like the initials of an old girlfriend. And much like the way a sculptor removes pieces to improve on it, Okano applies a subtractive process to bring the book back to life.

Once the job was done the book was returned to the customer, who presented it to his daughter as she was on her way to college. “It’s not their shape or form but what’s inside them that attracts us to books,” says Okano. For a man who makes it his job to repair the shape and form of books it’s an incredibly humbling statement and is a testament to the value we still hold in physical books. (via Reddit)
