Selected Titles for June 2020
We're a bit late this month with our June newsletter. All the current turmoil has made for a busy, and not always productive month.
The personal high point this month was Father's Day; the girls gave me an upscale portable vacuum cleaner (not a very subtle hint?), and Stephanie had an artist friend, Haley Brown (www.paintbyhaley.com) do a custom card in watercolor, with "books, cats and rabbits," three things that have been topics of conversation lately. Take a look at Haley's website.
The big news this month was that after 5 months, I was finally able to get a haircut! With social distancing so important, even the most basic services become challenging. And my vegetable garden is doing well. I added a piece of architectural salvage to the front beds, but so far the tomatoes and basil don't seem to mind.
I've added a few titles this month on British architecture and the building trades. And you'll recognize a couple of titles once again. David Hayles sent me the last four copies of his book on Scagliola; he's back from a round-the-world trip on his e-bike, and is writing a book about the year spent circumnavigating the globe. Stay tuned for the travelogue. And I still have two more copies of the Swiss Cat Ladders title.
To all of you ... stay safe out there, and happy browsing! Steven
