Pr*tty Sh*tty: An Open Letter to James Cameron From Papyrus
"Goodness knows Ive worked hard the past 26 years to make a name for myself. And its felt great coming to the aid of New Age spa owners, suburban party planners, and young couples looking to save money by making their own wedding invitations. But only now, by appearing in your movie, have I been given mainstream, high-level recognition as a serious typeface. And for that, I thank you."
Kenneth Noland, Color Field Artist, Is Dead at 85 (NYTimes.com)
"Kenneth Noland, who painted some of the great emblems of the postwar American abstract style called Color Field painting, died Tuesday at his home in Port Clyde, Me. The cause was cancer, said his wife, Paige Rense, editor in chief of Architectural Digest. He was 85."
