LET’S BRING BACK
Peppered with recipes, celebrity insights, lists you can easily memorize and proudly recite at swanky bohemian parties, and marginalia drafted by yours truly, this anecdotal encyclopedia of elegant customs and curiosities is a delight to read—even if you plan on remaining true to your own customs and curiosities, like wearing flip-flops to work. Which is gross, stop doing that.
20 illustrated plates were commissioned for this title and perfectly rendered by Grady McFerrin. If I could hire Grady to illustrate everything I undertake, including grocery lists, emails to friends, and applications for zero-interest credit cards, I probably would; his style manages to be moody, folksy, delicate, rustic, warm, remote, familiar, and new, all at once.
