James Joyce’s Ulysses – Bloomsday

 

Ulysses

Today is Bloomsday! James Joyce’s Ulysses took place on a single day, June 16, 1904. To celebrate, we created a “Mkgnao” bookmark with a hand-drawn cat silhouette. This reference is from Chapter 4, Calypso, when Leopold Bloom is first introduced:

“The cat walked stiffly round a leg of the table with tail on high.
—Mkgnao!
—O, there you are, Mr Bloom said, turning from the fire. The cat mewed in answer and stalked again stiffly round a leg of the table, mewing. Just how she stalks over my writingtable. Prr. Scratch my head. Prr.”

Wanderlust

“A journey is a person in itself; no two are alike. And all plans, safeguards, policing, and coercion are fruitless. We find that after years of struggle that we do not take a trip; a trip takes us.” – John Steinbeck

Wanderlust (n.) A strong desire to travel

As summer is soon approaching, it’s time to enjoy the outdoors and travel. Our Wanderlust necklaces are a great way to remember your journey. Our mini bottles contain a map with the word “Wanderlust” created with a Remington Ten Forty typewriter. We do custom orders with maps from anywhere in the world. You can choose a leather band with natural wood endings or a gold/silver chain.
