Two weeks and things are coming apart

coverglow1coverglow2coverglow3Okay, people, we’re approaching TWO WEEKS since this amazing and FUNNY book was launched by Rizzoli and WHAT’S GOING ON? Are we on the New York Times Best Seller List? No. Are we on ANY best seller list? None known to humankind. And why do you think that is? Go on, take a WILD guess. It’s because many of you, you know who you are, and so do we, I might add, have not purchased your copy yet. Does the phrase WHAT ARE YOU WAITING FOR? mean anything to you? How about the phrase YOU’RE NOT GETTING ANY YOUNGER. There are so many many reasons for you to pick up your phone and order this joyous ode to retail at the turn of the century, but here’s one you might not have thought of: the print is small. If you keep waiting, your eyes may change and you might not be able to read it. WORD TO THE WISE. And that word is PLEASE DO NOT TOUCH. Click on MOSS above and speed toward Amazon.

Headline change for the print edition

please do not touch, book signing

RIZZ INVITEPublication date is Tuesday April 10, which is when those of you wise enough and worried enough to plan ahead and pre-order your copy of our brilliant book about MOSS will be getting your books sent to you. Everyone here applauds your forethought and quick movements. Hear that? Okay, thanks guys. You can stop now. Anyway, this is a notice about the next step in the unleashing upon the world of our book.  A “conversation” between Murray and Franklin AND an opportunity to yes buy the book and then have it signed by us. Yes, both of us. I realize most of you do not have a clue what you’ll be doing on Monday April 23rd. So if you find yourself out and about, come on over to Rizzoli. Hilarity will reign. Click on the book to go to the book website for all kinds of things you’ll be happy to find.

 

Please Do Not Touch, the book

redt-shirtgraphicxx

Our about to be immensely popular new book, with the same title as the t-shirt, will be released on April 10th by Rizzoli.  It will probably sell out in one day. Look at what happened to Fire and Fury. Of course, our book is not about Trump. Though it does have some pretty juicy revelations. It’s the story of MOSS, like you never heard it before. And speaking of Trump, did you know he NEVER shopped at MOSS? Unless it was him who broke in that night and stole the bicycle. I wouldn’t put it past him. Anyway, click on the shirt to go to the special Please Do Not Touch website where you can learn everything you need to know, including that you should pre-order from Amazon. It’s better to be safe than sorry, my grandmother always said. She always pre-ordered. And no, you cannot buy that t-shirt. It’s sold out. Let that be a lesson to you.

 

Advance copies out to reviewers

cover22It does finally seem to be happening, the release of our book. Scheduled for April 10, but last week the advance copies arrived. What this means is that a box of books arrived by FedEx ahead of all the others which are on a ship somewhere. Design-obsessed Somali pirates take note. We are wore out handling the thousands of pre-launch demands for interviews and photo sessions. Okay, maybe not thousands. Okay, two. But they were long, okay? It seemed like more. You can click on the book and be whisked over to Amazon where you can preorder and have it delivered to your door rather than have to go out in the fourth or fifth bombogalactic winter storm which are no doubt waiting around the corner.

One crucial day left for the Moss Archives auction at Paddle8

STOP2 Please, please,  don’t live the rest of your life as a bitter and disappointed design collector. We know how miserable that will make you and those dear to you. First, you will begin to lose interest in everything you now love. You will start drinking more and more, secretly, and then openly, brazenly. And eventually, yes, we have seen this so many times before, you will spiral out of control. This sad path is so very clear, but it is not inevitable. We can but urge you to click through, now,  to the Paddle8 auction and take this final opportunity to give yourself the gift of great design, and thereby save yourself from a life of eternal dissatisfaction and design barrenness. We do not say this to benefit ourselves in any way, of course.  Our only concern is you. One day left.
