The Chronicle store in the Metreon just had a closing sale--I got a haul of stuff at 75% off! But they didn't have these beauties you want. Thanks for sharing this--I may try to list my favs on my blog too.

I love your blog, your beautiful collages, and your book choices. Thank you for being the first to point to the Chronicle drawing; I came in a little late last night. I'd like to feature your blog on mine Tuesday (paper-pencil-pen)-- can I copy/paste one of your collages? Mostly I'll write, but you inspired me to feature my own Polaroid transfers too! Keep up the great work!

Andrea T said...

what a cool list! I got bogged down in cooking and kids when I was creating my list (http://tennisonfamily.blogspot.com/2010/12/emerging-from-hibernation.html) but "Personal Geographies" looks like something I should've added

Lily said...

Fabulous choices, especially the fanzines book!
