book as art

by Liz

Very cool. Designer Chip Kidd’s new book, Only What’s Necessary: Charles M. Schulz and the Art of Peanuts, goes inside the archives of the Charles M. Schulz Museum to look at Schulz’s process as he turned out a mind-boggling 17,897 Peanuts strips over 50 years. I was initially grabbed by the heft and texture of the letterpress cover. I want to get the book just so I can touch the cover. And amazing what can be expressed with just a few lines — the squiggly mouth, the single hair curl.

Is butternut bread a thing I can get?

This would be sweet and a little salty as art in a child’s bedroom. Read! Even when it annoys your dog.

windows

In and around Lisbon, Portugal.

Is there anything that says “American tourist” quite like taking pictures of decrepit buildings, with their romantic, crumbling windows and rooflines? Like, your buildings, they’re so old!

DIA: beacon

by Liz

I took the train up to the DIA: Beacon gallery last weekend. It’s such a great space, and pretty quickly, I was more taken with the building than the art (eh).

I’m all about these windows.
