Ideal Bookshelf 1223: Banned Books

Here is a stack of books challenged and/or banned recently, mostly new but I included a few classics just to remind us all how crazy it is. Personally, I think banning books is just a futile attempt for adults to try to exert control over kids who are trying hard to learn how to be adults and need every bit of data they can get from all sources. And not only is controlling kids’ minds totally wrong AND basically impossible, but if that’s the goal then books are (by far!) the last thing anyone should be attacking (oh hi, social media). Also, this control-seeking is often just a manifestation of irrational hatred for anyone in any way different from the hater.

On the positive side, books that get banned often get an uptick in sales; Art Spiegelman’s classic graphic novel Maus is now on Amazon’s bestseller list, 30+ years after publication, thanks to a Tennessee school district banning it for “rough language” and a drawing of a nude woman.

In any case, this print makes a great reading list!

Framing & Sizing Info

We partner with our friends at Simply Framed to offer custom framing in your choice of frame, plus an appropriately-sized white mat and UV-shielding plexiglass. (You can see more details in our FAQ.)

Please note, if you order a framed 8 x 10" print or painting, it will arrive in a frame that is about 11.75 x 13.75". An 11 x 14" print or painting will be in a 16.75 x 19.75" frame, and a 16 x 20" in a 22.75 x 26.75" frame.

As all the frames are custom fit to the prints, framing your work adds 2-3 weeks to your delivery time, but it is SO worth it, we promise.
