Those of you who enjoy video games and books will want to check out The Sinking City, an upcoming game from Frogwares. Inspired by the works of H.P. Lovecraft, The Sinking City sees players exploring an open city where things aren’t all they seem. Read More

Kate Bush Pays a Second Tribute to Emily Brontë

By | Inspired by Literature, Video | No Comments
Kate Bush is an English singer–songwriter, dancer, and producer. She pirouetted into our lives in 1978 when she was just 19 years old, topping the UK charts for four weeks with her self-written debut single Wuthering Heights (check out her video below). With that successful single Bush became the first female artist to achieve a UK number one with a song she had written herself.

Wuthering Heights is based on the classic novel of the same, although Bush was actually inspired to write the song after watching a 1967 BBC mini-series adaptation of Emily Brontë. She was instantly hooked and straight away read the book, discovering that she shared her birthday (30th of July) with that particular Brontë. Serendipity!

This year, Kate Bush, along with other artists, has been commissioned to create another tribute to the Wuthering Heights author by providing words for a permanent art installation on the ‘wiley, windy moors‘ that inspired the famous tale.

Love on the Rocks Story Rocks are Super Cute

By | Arty, Children's Literature, Inspired by Literature | No Comments
Love on the Rocks is a recent craze to hit the UK (and the world) where people paint rocks in patterns or art, and hide them around the place for others to find and rehide. There are Facebook groups dedicated to the practice and while it was popular in the US, and Australia last year it’s only just hit the UK. This week we found a picture of a ‘Room on the Broom’ story rock and upon sharing it on our Facebook page the artist came forward.  Read More

Royal Mail and the Inappropriate Shakespeare Play

By | Inspired by Literature, News | No Comments
To celebrate the birthday of Mr William Shakespeare, the Royal Mail decided to dedicate some postboxes to the bard. They wrote quotes from his famous play ‘Romeo and Juliet’ on postboxes across the country but failed to notice the irony of their mistake.

Anyone who has read or seen the tragedy would know that the plight of the poor youngsters may have been prevented if a letter had arrived on time. Their deaths were at the hands of a late delivery! Perhaps Royal Mail had neglected to remember that fact when they chose this play over LITERALLY ANY OTHER.

Twitter became awash with snarky comments from ‘um actually’ types who couldn’t wait to let Royal Mail know their mistake.
