chroniclebooks:

Integral to the mechanics of a hardcover, endpapers offer a blank canvas for the imagination and creativity of a book designer. Also commonly known as end sheets, or endleaves, around here we usually just refer to them as “ends.”

From the Design Desk, Making of a Book series via the Chronicle Books blog.

"Filters are like auto-pilot for thinking critically, and visually, about one’s surroundings. The obstacles that they remove are precisely the obstacles that promote learning and a more discerning appreciation of what makes a good photo."

"The Rosseaus, Marxes, Tolstois — men of thought, mind you, ‘impractical’ men, ‘idealist’ have done more to decide the food you eat and the things you think do than all the millions of Roosevelts and Rockerfellars."

F. Scott Fitzgerald, who would’ve been 116 today, responds to hate mail accusing his work of being too impractical and out of touch with the “real people” who “create business and politics.”

I said to my soul, be still and wait without hope

For hope would be hope for the wrong thing; wait without love

For love would be love of the wrong thing; there is yet faith

But the faith and the love are all in the waiting. 

Wait without thought, for you are not ready for thought: 

So the darkness shall be the light, and the stillness the dancing.

T. S. Eliot in Four Quartets

Song: “I Just Wait” by Paloma Faith
