Here's to 2009!

I realize I'm about 6 days late for a Happy New year post, but I couldn't resist this one. This is a wonderful post I saw on Design Crush.

Neil Gaiman is the author of one of my daughter's favorite books, Coraline published in 2002 by Bloomsbury and Harper Collins. It was awarded the 2003 Hugo Award for Best Novella, the 2003 Nebula Award for Best Novella, and the 2002 Bram Stoker Award for Best Work for Young Readers. It has been compared to Lewis Carroll's Alice in Wonderland because of its surrealism and plot based in an alternate-reality. Gaiman is an English author of science fiction and fantasy short stories and novels, graphic novels, comics, and films. Other notable works include The Sandman comic series, Stardust, and American Gods. The extreme enthusiasm of his fans has led some to call him a "rock star" of the literary world. He lives near Minneapolis, Minnesota, United States, in an "Addams Family house". He is married to Mary T. McGrath and has three children, Michael, Holly and Madeleine. He also writes a journal you can view here.
