(This is post #702. I know, #700 would have been a lot more auspicious, but I must have been asleep at the wheel!)
The Art Marketing Action newsletter this week is about noticing things and tells the story of how Howard L. Cowdrick changed his postcards after watching how they were used (or not used, as is the case).
Serendipitously, a few minutes ago I plucked my copy of Encyclopedia of an Ordinary Life (EOAOL) by Amy Krouse Rosenthal off of the book shelf. It's one of my favorite books I've read this past year. I took it out because I'm trying to figure out exactly how my book, I'd Rather Be in the Studio!, will look and feel. And I love the look and feel of Rosenthal's book. (Bear with me, this is going somewhere.) In preparing my book, I've also become a reader of the copyright page. As I opened up EOAOL, I noticed this sentiment on the copyright page:
Not responsible for the lovely ladybug
or purple iris
or flirtatious glance
that was yours to enjoy
but which you did not notice.
