The Joys of Good Publicity
I'd normally preface this post with a blatant-self-promotion alert, but really, if you read between the lines, you will realize it's actually a love letter to the publicist who works on all the art books I edit for the fine publisher for which we both work. Because I am here to tell you today that said books have been getting some amazing love and attention out there in the media world of late. Of course this is largely due to the utterly awesome content created by their authors and artists, but the aforementioned fearless publicist deserves her due of credit as well. Because she rocks. Ok, maybe you don't really need to read between the lines after all. But suffice it to say there is hardly anything better than seeing the projects you've loved and worked so hard on for so long getting the rave reviews they so rightly deserve.
Above, Sorted Books by Nina Katchadourian in the San Francisco Chronicle Book Review (I especially liked seeing this one on good old-fashioned newsprint over my Sunday morning latte and croissant this week).
Tender Buttons by Gertrude Stein, newly illustrated by Lisa Congdon, on Brain Pickings.
A Kiss Before You Go by Danny Gregory on Slate.
The Magnificent Chicken by Tamara Staples on Design Sponge.
