Adobe Books Backroom Gallery presents Bookish, the inaugural exhibition celebrating the Backroom Gallery’s recent renovation and exciting transformation. To mark this special occasion, and to call attention to the position of the gallery within the context of the famed Adobe Bookshop, the exhibition will feature a range of artistic practices that share the book as an object of inquiry. Through various media including sculpture, painting, photography and social practice, each artist will animate varying questions based on our relationships to books.

Little Paper Planes

Warehouses, Long Johns, and other ways to survive the recession [photos]

In an afternoon, I met a certain executive at a recession -proof blogging company, had the greatest taco of my life, then attended a dinner party with my sister where I met Matt Rubin [], a wine connoisseur, and long john fanatics. The next moment I found myself in a indoor commercial space wearing hannah anderson long johns. What I would like to bring to your attention is the nature of the the repurposed (but not rezoned) commercial turned residential space. It was a dreamy spot, and I took some pictures:
