White Pine Printers in Ann Arbor is a midsize outfit that has been providing Ann Arbor with offset and digital printing for many years. In a generous effort at outreach, White Pine elicits the graphic design of calendars from local designers and art directors. Here in Michigan, which is over 80% forested, November's outdoor labor of collecting falling leaves blends into December's labor of moving and removing snow. This is the theme that is reflected in the 12 Acre Studio November/December calendar effort.
Every Sunday morning we used to rush downstairs to wallow in the glory of the Sunday New York Times. When we moved out of town delivery was no longer possible. Plus I was chafing at the $5 price tag... penny-wise, pound-foolish, eh? Anyhow, I got used to the weekly Book Review insert. Loved reading all but the fiction reviews. Never would have discovered Poppa Neutrino, Samuel Pepys, or countless other characters and stories that make for good, albeit condensed, reading. Inside The NYT Book Review Podcast serves the same purpose, for the most part. Diverse, succinct, and more often than not, most interesting.
