Hi to new followers and twitter folk. Please comment when it moves you; like a network TV comedy and rigidly-defined gender roles, bloggers need comments to live.

Speaking of twitter, through the feed of M K Reed, I found out about Tessa Brunton's comics. They looked familiar and it turns out a read a piece by her a few years ago. Good story, no? Anyway, I am loving these comics, especially Brunton's attention to the small pattern--polka dots, leave and wiggly lines are everywhere in her work and they add a sweetness to the work that I love. Plus, she has a favorite podcasts section on her site.


Better than cut any day.


My subway rides have been filled with The Wind Up Girl by Paolo Bacigalupi. It took me about a third of the way in to get into it, but now I am enjoying the swirl of spices, plant names, opium smoke and righteousness that blows through the book.

I've been lucky with my reading recently. More reviews soon.

Ditto on loving Tessa Brunton's work. Get those minis she's selling if you can--they're all really good.

Oh, I will! I've been spending my tax return on things like this. Joy!

Yeah, what Kelly said. They're also just beautiful little book-objects, with watercolor prints affixed to paper-bag covers.

Ok, Tessa Brunton's minis B-O-U-G-H-T.
