Alliteration Inspiration: Reading & Royalty

Alliteration Inspiration is a weekly column featuring the top twenty pieces of visual inspiration based on two random alliterative themes. This week’s thematic combo: reading & royalty.

Reading

Stephen King rightfully states that “books are a uniquely portable magic.” And though it’s difficult for a blog post to capture anything close to the magic that reading a book can inspire, these ten visual page-turners are filled cover to cover with creativity.

Royalty

“Power makes you a monarch,” Laurell K. Hamilton says, “and all the fancy robes in the world won’t do the job without it.” We can’t all be born into the royal family, so instead up our creative brain power to take full command our own mental monarchy. No matter your bloodline, embrace these ten royal offerings and you’ll be solemnly sworn in as a duke or duchess of design smarts.
