I am in the process of migrating over to Squarespace, where I just launched my first full-length post (I had been tinkering with a couple brief posts prior to this one, feeling out the site). My first full-length Squarespace post is devoted to the Daily Book Graphics project of artist/designer Julian Montague, which features a ton of amazingly drool-worthy vintage book images.
You can check out my post and Montague’s lovely book designs by clicking on the screenshot above.
I would also love any and all feedback on layout, design, content, etc.!

For this week’s installment of French Friday, I’d like to celebrate the incredible, edible egg. And some inedible eggs, too. French style. This blog is titled “Words & EGGS” after all…
