World Book Day 2012: Our Inspirations

Our thanks go out to all of the creative types who took time from their busy schedules, making great stuff for us to enjoy, to help us with this event.

World Book and Copyright Day was established in 1995 by UNESCO in honor of the birth and death of Shakespeare and the death of Miguel Cervantes in 1616.

Last year World Book Night was started as a connected event to give away thousands of free books in the hopes of spreading the love of reading.
