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.

Baby Jesus Barbie. Supplies are dwindling fast.

dollNo, we are not at an Amazon Warehouse on Cyber Monday, my friends. We are back in time to 1954 and photographer Massimo Ascani shot this for United Press Photo and it’s called, for some reason, “A Part of Christmas”. You can find this and many other excellent examples of compelling and disturbing vintage press photographs just waiting for you at Torpedo.House. I’ll bet you know exactly who this shot would be perfect for. As a little going away gift.

The Nelson Atkins Museum in Kansas City plus teepees and giant shuttlecock

IMG_1088Probably this makes no sense to you. That’s because you don’t know Moss Bureau is consulting with the Nelson Atkins Museum and we were just in Kansas City and the museum has a big installation up right now called The Plains Indians  (which explains the teepees) and the shuttlecock is actually an Oldenburg sculpture of which there are a couple on this giant lawn. The idea behind them was that there were these two giants playing badminton using the museum building as the net. I think badminton was invented in Kansas City or something, maybe. Anyway, see the things you can find when you get out of town? Click on the pic to see it bigger. And if you just can’t get enough of that shuttlecock, here’s the famous Shuttlecock Mug that you can buy from the museum’s gift shop. 101485 (1)
