February 2012

Stay gold, Ponyboy


I was a little obsessed with this movie and book during my formative years, for reasons I couldn't — or wouldn't — quite figure out at the time. I learned about sex by reading some incredibly graphic Outsiders fanfic written by a girl in my class when we were 12, which tells you a lot about how many stories you hear about Catholic school have some basis in fact.

Similarly, I was secretly fixated on this cover for this book, by the same author:

Rumble Fish

Ex Libris Beatrice Warde

Beatrice Warde

From a copy of the 1953 edition of Stanley Morison's A Tally of Types, here in the office.

Cindy, Jan, Marcia, and Carol

Here's the story of a lovely lady who was bringing up three very lovely girls.
