Third Man Books is now a thing and I’m PRETTY EXCITED!!! The first project, Language Lessons Volume 1 is now available for presale. 

The box set includes a really great looking hardbound book filled with contemporary poetry and prose, as well as two vinyl LPs and five pieces of artwork. So yes, you can read Language Lessons while listening to Language Lessons while sitting in a room filled with Language Lessons. Obsessive.

"There are books that one reads over and over again, books that become part of the furniture of one’s mind and alter one’s whole attitude to life, books that one dips into but never reads through, books that one reads at a single sitting and forgets a week later."

In addition to my regular written journals (college-ruled composition notebooks I’ve filled for ~19 years), I used to carry around “idea” books for observations, sketches and, well, ideas. Picking up the habit again.

well that’s a beautiful notebook.

I just finished reading Detroit City is the Place to Be and it was probably the best book/article/anything I’ve read on the city for a long time. It didn’t romanticize the city and it didn’t attack the city. Instead, Mark Binelli filled his books with stories about the people in the city. The people who made a difference, positive and negative, and the people who are still influencing the city today. It was honest and I loved it.
