The Weekly

OCTOBER 13, 2020


This week’s mailer is more about welcomed distractions than anything else. Fire up your browser, open all these links, and float away reading about things you maybe wouldn’t normally give the time of day.


Links That Kept Us Reading

Lynda Stuart and Rene Miller at Home (Fall 1984) by Pat Blashill
Pat Blashill’s photo book Texas Is the Reason “captures the energy and anarchy of Austin’s burgeoning scene between 1979 and 1987.” Straight from the pit. We love to see it.
Three experts who spoke at the Fast Company Innovation Festival said there’s no antidote to all this connectivity. If you’re up to it (and, maybe, want to make a few changes in your routine), read up on how constant tech is breaking our brains.
Readymag explored the lives and work habits of five designers from different backgrounds to find out what helps them stay productive and creative. We envy their drive. Looking for some inspiration? Start here.
Who would we be without including an article about our buddy, Pence Fly. See the best Twitter reactions here. Spoiler—there’s a lot of good ones.
Who says we don’t need a good city guide during “times like these?” The Recreationalist published a Guide to Chicago and if you’re looking for new ways to connect with our beloved city (safely), this list is for you.
Ever take the time to learn about Icelandic salt? Now’s your chance. Björn Steinar Jónsson hand-harvests flaky salt from seawater using a sustainable method developed in the 17th century. Yeah. Don’t sleep on this one, friends. Such a blissful rabbit hole.

Piece by Piece

Piece by Piece is a series of creative prompts to spur curiosity and creativity. Every other Tuesday morning, we’ll share a creative prompt that calls you to make, at any fidelity.
