Signatures, Notes, and Lists

  • The evolution of F. Scott Fitzgerald’s autograph.
  • We have long been intrigued by the Strand’s “The Jean Files,” a series of notes, found in books, to a woman named Jean. The latest plea is especially intriguing.
  • Listen to Dylan Thomas read “Do Not Go Gentle into That Good Night.”
  • Thank you to Iris Blasi for unearthing this vintage bit of Letterman, um, wit: Top Ten Bookstore Pickup Lines.
  • We may be biased, but are happy to disseminate the following: “According to a new study, people with an active interest in the arts contribute more to society than those with little or no such interest.”
