Lean linkity times ahead!

I am taking a couple of Thursday evening classes from now until November 16 at the Minnesota Center for Book Arts, so expect Linkity to be spotty or nonexistent…

Reading Update
NeuroTribes: The Legacy of Autism and the Future of Neurodiversity by Steve Silberman. Excellent (and epic) book that spans the history of autism and autism research up through the present. Highly recommended if you’re autistic, know someone with autism (you do, even if you don’t know you do), or wonder how the hell that antivaccine nonsense got started. That said, at times this book felt a bit unfocused as the author got caught up in backstories – a couple of times I wished I’d jotted down a list of names as I read so I could keep everyone sorted out. Perhaps that was just me and my notoriously bad memory. The book still gets five stars because of being both groundbreaking and sensible. 🙂

Linkity has had better weeks.

Still waiting to hear whether it’s totaled or not (the rear axle is bent and the frame is not longer in its original shape). I am fine! Which is great! (I was stopped at a red light and was hit at speed by someone who apparently didn’t notice all the stopped cars, only swerving into the ditch at the last moment.) But dammit, I really like(d) this car.

The Rubber Stamp Album: The Complete Guide to Making Everything Prettier, Weirder, and Funnier by Joni K Miller & Lowry Thompson. This a really good look at the history of rubber stamp making and using up through 1978, when the book was published. And I enjoyed the glimpse of life in 1978 that it provided – it was a reminder of a time when phone calls were expensive, personal computers were unknown, and the internet was ARPANet. You can pick it up for <$10 used – I recommend going through Better World Books (free worldwide shipping and proceeds benefit literacy).

Artful Adventures in Mixed Media: Techniques Inspired by Observation and Experience by Nathalie Kalbach. Very good look at different places to find inspiration and how to turn that inspiration into mixed media pieces or art journal entries. There were definitely a couple of new-to-me techniques I’m going to have to try.
