    Try making it more realistic, use an actual shelves wallpaper and actually make the icons sit on them. Make the books bigger, use more than one color of book, and make the text going the same direction on all of them (maybe add glyphs). Don't use a Calendar icon as it is right now. The font doesn't actually look like it's on the book, it looks like it's just floating there.

    Sorry don't mean to hammer you with criticism, you're new to theme making and it's a good attempt, a lot to be done to make it go above and beyond though.

    I think you should make it more like someone's personal bookshelf rather than a "library." As in, have books at angles where some are missing, have trinkets (or whatever) on the shelves along with the books, etc. And definitely have the books look like they're actually sitting on the shelves. Possibly put the name of the app vertically on the books' spines (if the text is still legible) and hide app labels.

    Yeah. And make the calendar text on the calendar icon look better or remove it completely.

    how do you hide the App labels? I'd like my apps with the names under neath.

    Without the names under neath.

    It's a default option in WinterBoard. There's "No Undocked Icon Labels" and "No Docked Icon Labels." Pretty self-explanatory.

    Yeah awal I like your idea, I was trying to make the books still facing forward instead. It'd be kinda confusing if you added trinkets unless you could write the app names on the trinkets.

    Yeah, I thought about that. I'm still not sure how it'd work, but I like the idea lol. Have the dock be a desk in front of the bookshelf and have an old radio sitting on it or something for iPod/Music; a picture frame somewhere on the shelves for Photos, things like that.
