Another option for future tastemakers is The Day the Crayons Quit written by Drew Daywalt and illustrated by Oliver Jeffers.  It features a box of crayons gone rogue: blue is exhausted, pink wants more paper time, yellow and orange demand to know the true color of the sun, green is happy with his workload of crocodiles, trees, and dinosaurs while peach wants to know why his wrapper was torn off leaving him naked.

If you want to captivate the younger set this holiday season, try this new McSweeney’s McMullens book from Jon and Tucker Nichols about the eccentric Crabtree character’s quest through his “collection”-filled house to find his missing false teeth.  Delightfully random and Maira Kalman-endorsed.  Check out the interview with the authors/illustrators below:

Hooray, Domino is back!  Who knows if it will be as rad an interior design magazine as it once was, but this story featuring my boy Nate Berkus in this first issue gives me hope.


I have schizophrenia when it comes to my perfect living room decor: museum wall or oversize original poster.  This Lonny sample nails both.

Make sure to pencil in my two favorite holiday craft fairs, people.  Stockings everywhere will thank you.  (Yes, yes, I know we’re not past Thanksgiving yet….)

I’m a fair weather fan but thought you sports nuts might enjoy these classy renderings of Bay Area teams.  More US and European teams from The Art of Sport online or in person at Eden & Eden in Jackson Square.
