Yesterday, I got something exciting in the mail: You may recognize that design from this t-shirt that we recently added to the Insatiable Booksluts shop over at Skreened. When I was designing it, I thought to myself, hey–it looks like a pendant, why not try […]

(Did you know it’s E.E. Cummings and not e.e. cummings according to the man (and his wife) himself? Learn something new every day, right?! It’s super fascinating how an error can become canon . . . BRB while I go question everything I ever learned.) […]
