bits & bobs

A visit the NY Antiquarian Book Fair, added to which: lounging under flowering trees in Central Park, a side detour to the new near east wing at the Met. Stunning, stunning, stunning. Pictures below.

The Peabody Essex visit was postponed for reasons of sobriety (upcoming show on hats!), but the lobster roll was delicious, which followed a study of items at the Salem Athenaeum, all delightful, full of fold-out maps and colored plates.

Upcoming, a lecture by Christo, with gratitude to Smith College.
Upcoming, a 'closing' party for the paste paper show, again, at Smith (April 26).
Upcoming, a wallowing in fraternal devotion in the city thereof, hopefully lacking sobriety.
Upcoming, a bunny making workshop, because I can.
