Instantly inspiring juicy random things collected and now living at the studio. I actually feel lucky to own these small works of wonder.

years ago, i bought a huge box of letters, flyers, and photos from a neighborhood estate sale and only recently went through the entire box. many, many letters from Germany to relatives in SF. it's interesting to look up these homes/addresses today. it seems crazy to me that we're able to do this.
Little Blue Books. i used to think these were highly unusual and very rare but they kept showing up in the bottom of book boxes, or tucked into file folders at flea markets and even used book stores. though filled with impressions and prejudices from the time, clement really hits the neighborhoods on the head. and they ain't much changed today!
