“On the other hand, cheap, rough paper with a beautifully set textblock hanging just so on the page makes those in the know, smile (and those who don’t, feel welcome). It says: We may not have had the money to print on better paper, but man, we give a shit. Giving a shit does not require capital, simply attention and humility and diligence. Giving a shit is the best feeling you can imbue craft with. Giving a shit in book design manifests in many ways, but it manifests perhaps most in the margins.” — Let’s talk about margins — The Message — Medium

post-separation day.
there was a scavenger hunt for signatures. it was ridiculous and i bounced between “we have computers now!” and “a big boy did it and ran away.” 
the latter being the most accurate description of the year. 
it ended as so many of the days often have - me, the sysadmin and the data manager staying late just trying to keep up. 
so i am going to spend the weekend letting all the balls i’ve been juggling for the last three years drop. a little terrified that i won’t be able to juggle like that again; a little terrified that i’ll have to and all of the implications of that. but, back to packing and considering scottish crime fiction vs scottish socialist scifi and if i will ever find those books again.

ah, packing. and contemplating the collection of drafting triangles. 

later, we’ll have a think about how many kinds of rulers one really needs in life.
