4 - Books are dead

The book icons. They never sat well with me. They looked old and dusty and, I dunno, restrictive:

I had to come up with something a little less obvious. A bit more abstract. So this is what we're using right now:

These icons still look 'bookish' so you know there's gonna be content behind them. But more abstracted. They glow from the inside. I said "like the suitcase in Pulp Fiction" and Paul liked it.

NERDOUT: Both these icons are transparent overlays that can be applied over any image.
