1. Forever Leaf

The odd and the beautiful are photos taken from the streets of New York City, our commutes, and our travels. Sometimes humorous, often times unusual, they offer a taste of life in the big city and beyond.

2. Modern Superheroes

Green Lantern and Superman

Comic Con 2010

The odd and the beautiful are photos taken from the streets of New York City, our commutes, and our travels. Sometimes humorous, often times unusual, they offer a taste of life in the big city and beyond.

Here is a photo from last month’s NYC Comic Con. What can be more multicultural than this modern interpretation of two classic superheroes?

3. A Lunch at the Museum

The odd and the beautiful are photos taken from the streets of New York City, our commutes, and our travels. Sometimes humorous, often times unusual, they offer a taste of life in the big city and beyond.

Audience Participation

Tu Books Editorial Director Stacy Whitman went to the National Museum of American History in Washington, DC. There was an actor at the museum playing one of the students from a 1960s Montgomery, Alabama, lunch counter sit-in. He explained why sit-ins and non-violent protests were important in bringing about social changes in our country. The young boy at the bottom left is answering the actor’s question about why just sitting at the lunch counter was important. The boy had a great answer too: “because we’re all equal.”

4. Row, Row, Row, Your Boat…

Rowboat

A different kind of commute

This week features an odd, little boat I noticed being rowed down the Hudson River as I waited for the train during my morning commute. Apparently, they were rowing from Albany to NYC and had been on the water for a week.

This week features this truck I noticed parked in Soho. What I like is that not only does the truck have a name, but there can never be any confusion over who sits where.

I spotted this snowman on the sidewalk on 35th Street and Park Avenue. Rarely do I see a snowman in the city and seeing him definitely brightened my morning commute.

8. A Different Kind of Book Art


We talk a lot about art in books and on books—covers, more covers, and illustrations. Art that’s part of the book. But what if we go in the other direction?

Art made of books?


From Villiard.


From Apartment Therapy.

Art made on books?


From This Blog Rules.

Art made for books?


From Josepfin Hellström-Olsson.

9. Hudson (Frozen) River

frozen Hudson River

While the weather outside is currently mild, three weeks ago we had a cold snap. The Hudson River resembled Alaska, and I half expected a polar bear to float by on an iceberg.
