Shanah Tovah Dudes!! 🍎🍯🍏 [Literary Lists]

That means ‘Happy New Year’ in Hebrew…. BECAUSE IT’S THE JEWISH NEW YEAR!!! Also known asΒ Rosh Hashanah.

I’m in the midst of my intensive second week of my Publishing MA here at UCL in London, but I thought I’d compile a ‘listicle’ of some Jewish themed or centric books in honour of the new year.

I found this list a while ago from Le Petit Prince‘s official website, which is quite coincidental as at the moment there are themed decorations for Christmas in Singapore from the book!

Hayao Miyazaki’s affection for the author of The Little Prince, pilot and writer, is at the heart of his movies. Many aerial scenes and flying machines that came out of his imagination are inspired by the life and work of Antoine de Saint-ExupΓ©ry (Porco Rosso, Castle in the Sky, From Up on Poppy Hill). The director, a recognized specialist of Antoine de Saint-ExupΓ©ry, has also prefaced and illustrated the Japanese edition of Night Flight.

This list of his resulted in an exhibition in 2011 which also included handwritten notes where he wrote about his feelings in relation to each book he chose.
