Not the Future

I had noticed the Mission-style doorway, and thought it looked very effective, but I'm not sure I recognize it - don't tell me it's Maxis?!
I had spotted the reference to Jostein Gaarder, and of course Douglas Adams, although I have to confess that the other names are unknown to me. I can understand what you mean about books being translated into other languages - the poetry can be completely lost, even with the best translation possible.
Ilon Wikland's paintings are delightful - I especially liked “Little girl sets off for the big world”. :)
(Oh, and yes, you really do have to share!)
