mail love


ooo, so many good things in the post the last few weeks! i've been too tired/busy/lazy to update as they came through, so here's some images in a bunch.

first was itchy's fabulon, long-awaited, beautifully crafted "short but interesting photographic journey through the city of melbourne." i love it to bits!


that's the cover. when you open it it unfolds accordion style, and the story continues on both sides, leading us through some of my favourite bits of melbourne. nostalgia and "i've been there!" moments abound.


it also came with a very clever moo card with a photo by itchy:


then was fabulon b'day pres from g+b, the more exciting for being several weeks early and thus completely unexpected. huzzah for forward planning!

b'day pres had many many tiny and big parcels all wrapped up with ribbons. two of my favourites are the incense wombat and shaun tan's new book, which i never even knew existed til it turned up in my mailbox!


there are many other goodies, including snowgum seeds which i have to go pop in the fridge right now. . .

glad you hadn't heard of the new Shaun Tan - was sure one of your with-it friends would have sent it already

what do you think of it?

i like the shaun tan v. much. i have to read it again more slowly. i think my favourite is the "alert but not alarmed" story. everyone loves gentle satire.

v. good pictures.
