Type galore in rural midwest

Justine Nagan’s feature-length documentary Typeface tells the story of the Hamilton Wood Type Museum in Two Rivers, WI. The museum contains over 1.5 million pieces of wood type and more than 1,000 styles and sizes of patterns, Hamilton's collection is one of the premier wood type collections in the world.

Typeface (the film) will be premiering in London and several U.S. cities this month. A DVD release is expected later this year.

Anyone have friends near Two Rivers? Next time I find myself in the midwest, I would love to take a detour.

Shiitake mushrooms, blanched spinach over polenta and creamy garlic hummus - tasty!

The high line...finally

It was a beautiful day in NYC, and finally got to an opportunity to visit The High Line! The High Line was originally constructed in the 1930s, to lift dangerous freight trains off Manhattan's streets, but now it is a beautiful park that reflects the origins of the space.

Raleigh edition of 'Antiques Roadshow' premiered tonight

Just watched my favorite show - recorded last June in my home state of North Carolina. I was excited to hear the accents and see a record level apprasial!
These four pieces of Chinese carved jade from the Chien Lung Dynasty (1736-1795), including a large bowl crafted for the Emperor, were given a conservative estimate of as much as $1.07 million - whoaaa!

vegan muffuletta goodness

I've been in the kitchen this holiday weekend – made for a tasty brunch & lupper.


Our first dinner of 2010

I had a successful afternoon in the kitchen! This baked tofu, asian slaw and mashed sweet potatoes was inspired from a recipe from The Conscious Cook, an outstanding cookbook with tons of photos (that look much better than this one ;))

Thanks to Heather & Bryan for this gift!
