I am the luckiest. I stumbled onto some just very cool and interesting people at grad school. Two of them were tweeting at me all day, which made me smile all over, another one went to a late night drag show with me last night, and another group is VERY invested in going to EVERY book arts and library lecture that comes along. 

I’m the happiest.

Nothing better than designing typography in tile. When you finish it already feels like it’s been around for 50 years. And hopefully it’ll be around for at least 50 more.

Two photos taken from Lake Shore Drive at Belmont, looking south, 1951, Chicago.

Notice the three wide parallel lines that run along the drive. These were called “fins” and could be hydraulically raised or lowered depending on the time of day to regulate traffic patterns.

The first photo was taken between 6:30-9:30 am. One fin would be raised, creating 2 lanes of north bound traffic and 6 (!) lanes of south bound traffic.

The second photo was taken between 4 and 7 pm, showing 6 lanes designated as north bound (with three “express” lanes in the center) and 2 lanes as south bound.

During non-rush hour traffic, only one fin would be raised in the center, creating 4 north bound and 4 south bound lanes - the permanent configuration we have today.

I imagine this had the potential of creating chaos as the fins appeared or disappeared, but there are many mornings during my standstill commute downtown that I wish this was still in practice!

Maybe civil engineering experiments aren’t cool to everyone, but they’re cool to me!

A little homestead nestled away in the Blue Ridge Mountains of North Carolina (see more here)

I’ve been following this woman for several years now… Her name is Ashley English and she and her family have what seems to be the most lovely life. They live in the mountains, near Asheville, grow a lot of food in their stunning garden, have adventures in the woods, keep bees and chickens, cook RIDICULOUS meals (her husband’s instagram is hungrifying), all while writing excellent, approachable books about food and living well. Her blog can be found at smallmeasure.com
