Well, that's not true. But, there is a cool thing going on in Chicago tonight.

From 6 to 9 this evening, you can peruse the first ten books Tano has put out through LA ANONIMA. Also, there is supposed to be a slide show at 7:30. Loyal readers might remember the previous post about the blurbs I wrote for the first few. I wrote some more for the latest books and they will all be bound together in zine form, available at the show.

Eat a great falafel at Sultan's and check out some really thoughtful books. They are never straightforward texts. They are pilfered reprints of architectural thought, studies of of carpet fragments, distorted images of an imploding building. Each presents a visual history, never assuming a neutral tone of the critical observer or allowing the possibility of an uncharged take on the aesthetic.
