The Book Icon Community

Where you go to post book icons

Posting Access:
All Members
As you may have already guessed, this community is about sharing and making icons about books.


What constitutes a book_icon?

An icon is suitable for posting in this community if:

- it is based on artwork, recognisable fanart, or a quote from a book, author, poem, or graphic novel

- it is based on a quote or a screencap from a movie version of a book

- it is not book related (or is from a fanfic) but there are book-related icons in the same post

- it is not about a specific book, but it is about books in general

Moodthemes, friends-only banners, and requests are also allowed subject to the same guidelines. These are not categorised by subject in the memories, however, unlike the icons.


Please review these rules carefully before posting. There is no excuse for not knowing the rules of this community. If you are unsure of a rule, you can always ask one of the maintainers. If your post is breaking a rule, and includes a phrase such as "I don't know if this is okay...", it will be deleted.
