My GOODNESS, it has been a minute since I wrote a blog post. Well, that’s not entirely true–I’ve just been blogging in other places: Over on the Smithsonian Institution Libraries blog I have a post and short video showcasing X-Ray Magazine and another post in which I interview book artist Robin Price about her work […]
This will be the image on my new business cards that are being designed and hand letterpressed by my lovely best friend, Shayna Norwood! Check out her amazing Chicago-based business, Steel Petal Press! I highly recommend her for business cards and wedding invites to anyone looking.. Some day when I have a big gay wedding… […]
