Anyone who has ever rummaged through an antiquarian bookshop for old books may know the feeling: you find a dusty cover in the far corner of a shelf, pull it out and leaf through the brittle pages with reverence and fascination. Anyone who has experienced this knows that books are more than printed information bound between two book covers. Rather, they are fascinating products that - if they are old works - often bear witness to a bygone era. For enthusiastic collectors, they are even more: status symbols for which one is sometimes prepared to spend a fortune.
_____________________
Even as a little girl, she loved books more than anything and often went around town with her book cart to sell her books to passers-by. This way she earned some gold. When she grew up, she talked to a businessman and opened her own bookshop. Now she is a young woman who runs a small bookshop and is dedicated to finding rare first editions.
She manages to pull off the big coup that every bibliophile collector dreams of: she finds the ultimate first edition, which is not only old and in remarkably good condition, but also contains a mysterious original dedication by the author. The work is a binding by Ipos, a demonic tome. The cover is aged leather adorned with an oval frame with purple demonic runes at the center of which is a purple eye with a yellow iris that moves around as it observes its surroundings. On each of the four corners of the book are decorative metallic demonic hands with three clawed fingers and a thumb. When drawn, the book floats in front of the user and opens to the bookmark, revealing pages with purple glowing text and diagrams. She spends a fortune on the volume and achieves a certain notoriety among collectors.

This is my short story * inspired by Ipos (and other beautiful books that exist as Focus in GW2)
_____________________
In the game there are some items, such as Back Item and Focus, that look like books. There are also many bookshelves in different designs. That served as inspiration for me. Dark Academia fashion is all the rage right now. So with the styling of my character, I tried to capture that mood. Here are more pictures : (coming later)
And today I'm showing you a cosplay character - a bookseller and collector. I tried to convey the mood of my little story with screens. So have fun in the book world!

Since this is about cosplay, I have shown Focus. You could use Lorekeeper Weapon as the game character. They would fit the look perfectly.

The dark art librarian look is really refined here and the book of ipos is one of my favourite legendary skins, so bonus points for that!

The character gives me the impression that they'd go to extreme lengths to get what tomes of knowledge they deem worthy of their collection. It's a cool character concept with decent screens, gold for sure.
