Teabags! Perfect cookie for a Tea Party! For my boss's birthday I made these shortbread tea bags... I was inspired when I saw some wooden tea bags as part of a kid's play food set - I thought hmmm one day I could do shortbread dipped in chocolate! I made little tags with cupcakes and used embroidery thread. I used a round icing tip to punch a little hole in each one before I baked so that I could thread it later. ps... shortbread recipe from: Source INSTRUCTIONS - click HERE and turn to page 55 & 56. Books Acquired, 1.17.2012—Or, Here’s What’s New from Picador This Month. The kind people at Picador sent me a box of books, including a memoir (Margaux Fragoso’s Tiger, Tiger), a few novels (The Lover’s Dictionary by David Levithan; Ralph Sassone’s The Intimates; Alan Glynn’s noir thriller Bloodland; Dieter Schlesak’s The Druggist of Auschwitz, which purports to be a “documentary novel”; and Zoë Heller’s first novel, Everything You Know), and a work of political science (Ari Berman’s Herding Donkeys).

A box of books is a bit overwhelming, but I make it a point to spend some time with every book that comes into Biblioklept World Headquarters. Here’s some thoughts on these. I actually ended up reading almost all of The Lover’s Dictionary, despite it having the word “lover” in the title, which, jeez. When my wife picked it up, she said something like, “How can they call this a novel?”

— fair question, because the book is structured like a dictionary. Zoë Heller’s Everything You Know: This is new in paperback again after over a decade. Like this: Like Loading... Geek.

Marjan Teeuwen: Crammed Spaces « 15 Nov Click to enlarge An anxious feeling infiltrates my chest a bit when looking at Dutch artist Marjan Teeuwen’s photographs, and yet I find it hard not to be pulled in.

These crammed spaces that evoke a sense of claustrophobia and obsession are so jam-packed with objects that in some cases ceilings, floors and walls are hardly recognizable. Some of the photos have the objects set up by function, others by texture and color, but all have them packed in creating an oppressive and confined feeling.

The photo series have titles like Archives and Destroyed House, that is if the free translator I used translated correctly. Kind of crazy, but kind of cool, also. You can see more of Teeuwen’s work here and here. via cokkie snoei. Avoiding Traffic Jams. LinkScroll down for today's pictures & links.

Quote Posters | The Graphic Works of Ben Barry. PreviousProjectNextProjectHomepage This is an ongoing series of self initiated screen printed posters I produce and put up around the Facebook offices. Some of the quotes, like “move fast and break things,” are mantras at Facebook, others are just personal favorites I’ve picked up from various sources along the way. They are meant to inspire, motivate, and question our internal ideas. As you can see they definitely spawn conversation and interaction with other Facebook employees, which I think is awesome.
