Cool Cover(s) of the Week (kind of): Blue Vein and Red Threat

 I didn’t have time this week to scan in a cool cover. But I have had this image ready, just waiting to put in a post.

A few years ago the New York Times ran this picture which I thought was fabulous. This image isn’t as good as I would like because the copy of the picture that I scanned has gotten a bit beat up in my files over the years.

In looking for information on this art installation I came across this great article about color coded shelves. From that article:

Even The New York Times Magazine’s style section recently featured the home of art collector Andy Stillpass, which houses a number of site-specific works by leading contemporary artists in a wide variety of media, including Stillpass’s own books, which were rearranged first by Dominique Gonzalez-Foerster to form “The Blue Vein” in 1993 and then further juggled by Rirkrit Tiravanija to form “The Red Threat” several years later.

Book Review and Cool Cover of the Week: The Old Man and the Sea

The Old Man and the Sea
Ernest Hemingway

What can be said about Hemingway that hasn’t been said before? It is like “reviewing” Jane Austen. What is the point?

What I can say is that I thoroughly enjoyed reading The Old Man and the Sea. Essentially a fishing story with layers of meaning about life and getting old, and a plot that makes one want to read it in one session. Which I did.
