Pigeon Feathers

I've been reading Pigeon Feathers by John Updike lately. It's a collection of short stories and I've been making my way through it one story at a time before bed.

Last night I read Archangel and loved this part about handwriting:
The microscopic glitter in the ink of the letters of words that are your own.

Each story in Pigeon Feathers is so different and I'm really enjoying reading one story at a time. Keeping them separate in my mind.

I found this book review from the New York Times in 1962. Love you, archives.

Tiny Tattoos With a Story

I already have a small tattoo on each of my wrists. On the left, a lowercase 'p' for my younger brother Patrick. On the right a fleur-de-lis for my time in Florence and New Orleans.

But what about a tiny lightning bolt for Harry Potter? Or a small whale tail for Moby Dick?

Basically, I'm loving this tiny tattoo project by Austin Tott and all the possibilities it holds. It's amazing how quickly each of these photos reminded me of a specific book or story.

Letters for 84 Charing Cross Road

A reminder of A Walk in the Woods:

What do you think? What tiny shape would you pair with what background? What book would you permanently attach to your body?

Bonus points for Austin being a Seattle artist.
