  1. oh my. such loveliness. I think I’m going to have to buy the Hand Job book eventually… all the images I keep seeing from it online. its really too much! 🙂

  2. I read through “Taking Things Seriously” in about a day. Some really interesting objects in there. Seems like it’s often more about the experience and the story than the actual object. David Berman has a line in a poem, “Souvenirs only reminded you of buying them.” It’s kind of like that.
