hey, didn't I make that sign? ... no, I don't need credit, but you're supposed to be the artist, make your own sign :)

I definitely made this one. Rather sloppily, in Picnik. Did you have the same idea, and I missed it? Was it on Effing? Mediocre minds think alike. :)

that is weird. but it's clearly not the same font. I posted mine on LISNews.

Not that weird, really. Our senses of humor overlap, and we're both in libraries. I remember being bummed to learn I wasn't the first to come up with "Aryanzona" for "Arizona" a while back. And I wanted to name my first book of poetry (nonexistent) "Miracle Fruit," which I thought was pretty obscure, but then another poet did. Happens. Apologies if you felt ripped off.

PS: I posted the following at Stephen's Lighthouse, which was, to my knowledge, the only place my post was mentioned: "Stephen–for the record, apparently the Effing Librarian (http://effinglibrarian.blogspot.com/) had this idea before I did. I didn’t see his graphic before making mine, but his is actually smoother (mine was slapped together in Picnik): http://i195.photobucket.com/albums/z213/effinglibrarian/KEEP-CALMcopy.png"

thanks, but as you mentioned, it's not a huge leap to modify that poster from the original... it's just that when I first saw it, I thought, "holy crap!"... so there is no "first" when it comes to stuff like this... but I'm glad you didn't try to steal my title for my poetry collection, Miracle Fruit, published in 1977...
