San Francisco: The Literary City

This just made me way too excited. Even though I kind of wish there were a Boston version.

The image appeared as an accompaniment to THIS ARTICLE in the San Francisco Chronicle, which reveals that the man behind the 2005 design is Paul Madonna.

Thanks to the always-inspiring and photographically fabulous WeLoveTypography for introducing me.

Instinct and Grace…

I feel bad because I can’t recall who tipped me off about Kylie Johnson‘s brilliant ceramic and poetic creations. I promise I would give credit, but apparently I am deficient in short-term memory. Not unlike Drew Barrymore in 50 First Dates. Except I barely ever have one first date. But that’s beside the point. The point being that Kylie Johnson’s words and creations are uniquely lovely and memorable. You’ll see what I mean with the following photos, which are all borrowed from her blog, aptly called Instinct & Grace. Please also pay frequent visits to Kylie’s online store, Paper Boat Press, where you can not only purchase her book of poetry, Count Me the Stars, but also all of her ceramic and non-ceramic creations!

Enjoy feasting your eyes…
