Excellent stuff. It should be noted that there is a nsfw Man Ray photo incorporated into one of the images if you scroll down a bit at the first link, for those of you who work for philistines.

Not only do I love these, but his "buy it from an independent bookstore" led me to discover that my local independent bookstore has an online store, which means I can now hit them on the spur of the moment rather than Amazon.

I definitely work for philistines, so I scrolled down as an act of rebellion.

Love Terry Border's work, which I discovered on the blue, and am glad to be reminded of it again. Very witty and charming.

Not bad, but he's no Marsha Tosk.

(Sorry, Officer, I'll come quietly.)

Those Marsha Tosk things look like something at a church craft show.
