While it’s true that books aren’t always better than people, sometimes, just sometimes, reading a good book can be better than a real-life conversation. What do you think? :)

If you were a young reading enthusiast growing up sometime between 1983 and the early 2000s, you probably have watched the popular show “Reading Rainbow” at some point or another.

The educational children’s series was featured on PBS and brought the love of reading to children all across the United States. In 2012, in hopes of making a comeback, the show launched an interactive reading app for Kindle and iPad carrying the same name.

After seeing the “Reading Rainbow” app launched, host LeVar Burton was inspired by the potential technology has to bring reading to children around the globe and decided to launch a Kickstarter campaign to revamp the original series.

As you can imagine, the campaign has garnered quite a lot of attention and has been referred to as “the most popular Kickstarter project ever.”

In fact, the project is such a big deal, that Seth MacFarlane decided to get on board with it and has promised a $1 million donation in order to push the “Reading Rainbow” initiative past its $5 million objective.

There’s nothing more heartwarming than seeing people get really excited about promoting reading, is there?

New Poster: A Journey to the Center of the Earth

Banner---New-Release---A-Journey-to-the-Center-of-the-Earth-poster

We are delighted to inform you that we now have a brand new poster available! Delve deep beneath the surface of our planet with this venturesome A Journey to the Center of the Earth art print.

A Journey to the Center of the Earth (24×36″ – 91.4x61cm)

Journey - DSThis A Journey to the Center of the Earth poster is created using the first 36 chapters of the book.

In Jules Verne’s fictional travelogue, Journey to the Center of the Earth, an astounding tale of jaw-dropping proportions takes shape. Three protagonists, the fearless Professor Lidenbroc, his hesitant nephew Axel, and their sturdy guide Hans Bjelke, journey step by step towards the mysterious interiors of planet Earth. None know what awaits them in the fiery center, but despite all dangers and against all odds, the three strapping pioneers seek out the answers to the mysteries of the earthly deep. In the last chapters of this riveting novel, what these trailblazers encounter at the Earth’s subterranean interior could either bring them eternal acclaim, or result in their violent and premature end.

The rapacious words of Journey to the Center of the Earth quake and fuse together in this literary poster to foster an image full of explosive action. In the center and at the head, the fearless Professor Lidenbroc is shown leading his stalwartly crew courageously forward on the greatest expedition of his age. Despite their inner trepidations, the three figures push forward, prepared to face a mysterious world full of bizarre manifestations and fantastical beings. Even as savage behemoths collide around them in a spark-filled spray of foam and water, the group continues on with steady hearts and bold spirits. In this bookish picture, these dauntless explorers step into the underground recess with fiery faith, choosing to follow their destinies into the darkness and go where no man of their time has gone before.

A Journey to the Center of the Earth is one of the greatest sci-fi works to arise from the 19th century, and in this incredible literary depiction, the most paramount adventure to ever take place on Earth is laid out with a rich and heart-pounding flair.
