"I Wanna Live In A Small Library"

Andrew pointed the way to today's "Minimalism with an Exception" comic from Wasted Talent... "Someday I will live in a library that is also a maze (so I have lots of walls for art). It will look like a castle from the outside and treehouse from the inside, all the exterior walls will be giant windows. It will have a reading enclave, an art studio and a machine shop. Also it will be on an island with chickens and goats. This is all going to happen when I am a zillionaire."
