Miggy, I hope you know we’re so honored to have you as a reader here. I feel like we know you as you’ve been so willing so discuss and converse with us here. We LOVE it. Even your challenges and questions, etc. It’s always such a treat. And thank you tons for contributing to the blog this week.
We’ll be sending you a gift that is special to me…this print from BOOK/SHOP, a little shop in Oakland that is run by some long time friends of mine who used to live in Brooklyn. They are some of the most talented people I know. Their shop and their gorgeous website are dedicated to “the reading experience” – which is so lovely as it seems gadgets have just taken over our lives.
They sell beautiful, collectible books and all the things that go with them: bookcases, reading chairs, reading lamps, bookplates, bookbags, and book related artwork.
“Arches papers are mouldmade in Lorraine, France with 100% cotton fiber content. They are air-dried in a mill that’s been in operation since 1492. It has beautiful color and texture and the print comes unframed, showing off the paper’s soft deckled edges. The screen printing is done in Oakland, California, from an original watercolor painting by BOOK/SHOP founder, Erik Heywood, and is stamped “BOOK/SHOP” on the back.” $45.
FYI, for the rest of August we are giving a thank you gift each Friday to a random reader who has left ANY comment during the week on ANY post. We just want to say thanks to the community here. You guys are awesome.
