Crap day. Another one. But brightened by the beauty you see above. Salvaged by the Flickr photostream that is one arresting image after another. And some humanizing images of frame purchases and book distribution center in individual's hallway that remind one that the quest for true loveliness can be an arduous process.
"We Are The Friction is a book of illustration and short fiction created by 12 pairs of international writers and illustrators. It's the second book edited, designed and published by Sing Statistics, the collaborative concern of Jez Burrows and Lizzy Stewart.
The book paired writers with illustrators, both established and emerging in their disciplines. Each then produced new work inspired by the work of their partner: stories from illustrations, and illustrations from stories. The result is an erratic, eclectic collection of work that takes in space travel, Japanese deities, monster husbandry, and the Marx Brothers."
As in, hurry up people. Get one now before they are gone. True beauty is not infinitely reproducible. Not available on Kindle.
