A little Estonian seaside! These were taken a couple years back with my fine friend Costance Kilgore. Shown here, is a handsome windmill (yes, he has a pipe in his mouth) and various cairns on the Estonian island, Saaremaa. Mister-windmill did have a female companion, but she's now a heap of rubble. Sad, but true.
Our warmer weather makes me long for big big water, rocks, swimming fun, travel and getting out of landlocked midwest. We booked our tickets to Wales—hurray to a soon-to-be vacation!

Some of my favorites from: On Language.
The exhibit would be great to see, if only I were in newyork.
Kinda crazy > my name sits amongst the true wordstars!
"In late 2005, The New York Times Magazine's On Language column, a weekly reflection on current usage of the English language (traditionally written, since 1979, by William Safire), took a new visual turn. Instead of simply typesetting the headline each week in standard fashion, then-Art Director Arem Duplessis (who is now the Design Director) saw an opportunity to create something more; a forum for typographic play. He proposed that a different artist, designer or illustrator interpret that headline every week instead. Five years and well over two hundred contributors later, the On Language column has become a showcase for contemporary typography. Curated over the years by Kristina DiMatteo, Gail Bichler, Leo Jung, Hilary Greenbaum, Cathy Gilmore-Barnes, Aviva Michaelov and Robert Vargas… " from the The Society of Publication Designers

Above: this is just a preview of a seven foot map that you can add to!
We're quite excited for our artlab at the Walker Art Center——part of the Designing Play series. It will be a letraset extravaganza!
It's Free! It's today, April 15th from 6-9! It may just be the thing you need after filing your taxes, maybe?!
Also, Make sure to watch the super-awesome ro/lu video that shows tidbits from their artlab, Landscape Re-Mix.
+++I'm looking forward to this next week.

We just arrived back from the northshore. The quick report on our trip: We get very high marks for lounging, saunaing, swimming, movie watching and slumbering… The ratio of eating/drinking to physical activity was a bit off——next time more hiking.
more to come.

Great cover huh! I do love the editor's claim to fames; i think Roland may be friend with Bernie.
I have yet to sample any recipes from the book, but I have read over the 'celebrity' bios. Don Draper, no?!
For a great dinner option…
