Alabater, Argosy, and Dexter Sinister.


I love specificity, dedication, and obsession. All can be found in spades at the blog Books in New York. I was answering some questions for a writer this morning and one included, "Do you have any off-the-wall design practices, rituals, etc?" My answer: " Whenever I begin a new project, I head to my favorite used book store with a cup of my favorite iced cardamom coffee. If I strike gold at the 50cent and dollar carts, I consider the project blessed and an auspicious undertaking." Which, for the record, I don't consider to be off-the-wall at all.
