Woman reading. French postcard c1920s.
Books are the quietest and most constant of friends; they are the most accessible and wisest of counsellors, and the most patient of teachers. Charles W. Eliot (1834 - 1926), The Happy Life, 1896.
This week’s contribution is by Kyle Fewell, an illustrator from New York who probably draws some of the best cats on the internet.
His music choices make a nice contrast with the cavalcade of cute cats, girls and food illustrations in his portfolio.
Innumerable Forms - Frozen to Death EP
This is my go to album currently at work. Nice old school death metal sound. ‘Frozen to Death’ and ‘Contaminated’ are the best things on the album.
I’ve been a big fan of Kyle’s work for a long time. It was fun to find out what he listens to. Actually this whole project is turning into an interesting mosaic of people’s preferences. I’m hoping it will only grow more diverse.
