chroniclebooks Resurrecting our weekly #ChronicleArchives with Star Wars: From Concept to Screen to Collectible, published in 1992. It features early design work, including character sketches like this one of Yoda. And to think, he could have looked like Santa or a garden gnome! #tbt #CBStarWarsStyle 4d

chroniclebooks National Poetry Month calls for celebrating our fuzzy poets, naturally. Here's a good one from I Could Pee On This: And Other Poems by Cats.

I Lick Your Nose

I lick your nose
I lick your nose
I lick your nose again
I drag my claws down your eyelids
Oh, you’re up? Feed me

chroniclebooks What's one way to tell if your book's made sustainably? Judge it by its back cover to see if it bears the mark of the Forest Stewardship Council (FSC), or that little tree logo.

As a book publisher, we think about paper a lot. We make sure it looks and feels right. We study how it will hold up with wear and tear. And most importantly, we think about the environmental impact of these choices. Read how we've been steadily increasing how much FSC-certified paper we use, now on the blog. #EarthDay #ChronicleConnects

  •   paileencurrie Sorry to moan @chroniclebooks, I really love your titles, but I feel you're giving misleading information here. Publishers don't 'have' to include the FSC certification (yes, I know - why wouldn't you shout about it if you were using FSC-certified paper?!), but it doesn't necessarily appear on the back cover, or even be used at all, but would still be made from FSC-certified produce. This info could be quite damaging for other publishers. However, I'm glad to hear you are using paper from sustainable sources. Happy earth day! 2w
  •   chroniclebooks @paileencurrie thanks for the great clarification - duly noted! We applaud all publishers who are FSC-certified and making sustainable strides. Happy earth day to you too! 2w
  •   7amanito Hi. :) are you ever interested in translated books or working with translators? 2w
