19th Century Author Biographies book cover series by Hilary Gaby

Charles Dickens, Fyodor Dostoyevsky, & Mark Twain
 
The concept for this biographical book cover series was centered around the author’s place of origin, and features elements that directly reference those places. A papercraft technique was used to create a three dimensional landscape scene which would enforce the idea of the author’s setting and help achieve a sense of cohesiveness through out the series.
I chose to incorporate fences and other small icons to depict the author’s life and to help illustrate what kind of environment these literary legends were exposed to and how that had direct influence on  some of the most famous stories in history.

Those are lovely.

Is this ground tusking coupled with a floppy run?  He must want to play!  Elephant Voices, who also shot this video of a male at the Olare Orok Conservancy in 2011, has compiled an extensive database of elephant gestures and their meaning for anybody who’d like to understand our big gray friends a little better.  

In addition to studying and lobbying for elephants in Africa for 30+ years, Elephant Voices co-founder Dr. Joyce Poole is lending her expertise to Global Sanctuary for Elephants, co-founded by Scott Blais with Dr. Poole and others, which is an organization currently working to build a sanctuary for retired captive elephants in Brazil.  This proposed sanctuary will be modeled on the progressive and humane elephant-keeping principles of The Elephant Sanctuary in Tennessee, which Scott also co-founded in 1995, which aims to give elephants retirement from captive zoo or circus life and the freedom to just be elephants for the first time.

All of these elephant projects need our support, so if you’re looking for a way to celebrate World Elephant Day on August 12 (besides floppy running and ground tusking) donating or bringing attention to these worthy causes is a great place to start!
