Sent Does Not Mean Received

I'm sure I'm late to the party with these two blogs, but I have to mention them anyway. I don't remember now which came first for me, The Selby or  The Improvised Life--but it doesn't much matter since they are both filled to the brim with interesting, time-sucking ideas and info. This particular post about designer and artist Tom Sachs grabbed me, of course, because of his (re)use of materials.
One intriguing thing both blogs have in common is the use of the hand-written word. That's right--actual human handwriting. How often do you see that anymore?? The Selby has created a signature, one page, hand-written questionnaire at the end of each photo essay and The Improvised Life's manifesto follows that style as well. If you haven't already, spend some time perusing these two blogs. You will not be disappointed.
