Friday roundup

Post Comment


We’re high and low this Friday with inspirational quotes, rejection letters, typos, and decoupage artwork! Without further ado…

  • Calvin Was Right blogger Faustine posts great images of her blank Habana quote book on Twitter. Here it is with her favorite Lamy pens, and here with a now-discontinued Caran d’Ache turquoise ink.
  • Rejection c’est la vie for most aspiring (and many established) writers… here are some familiar examples of great authors snubbed, plus a few ones I hadn’t heard of. Wrote Arthur Fifield to Gertrude Stein: “Being only one, having only one pair of eyes, having only one time, having only one life, I cannot read your M.S. three or four times.”
  • Michael Reid Roberts writes in praise of… typos? Yes. And it’s actually kind of illuminating.
  • Where can Exaclair’s Decopatch paper take you? Far beyond toothbrush holders, it would seem: check out these great pieces by Sandra at Life Imitates Doodles, if you haven’t seen them already!
