I was more than a little pleased today to see the work of Mrs. 5000 -- a book artist who is, in my evenhanded and dispassionate opinion, only slightly greater than Joseph Cornell -- featured on the Rag and Bone Blog. Lamentably, she is not credited. Hers is, you know, the best one. Third one down. With the little birdy.
Oddly, if you scroll down in the blog (which is worth doing; there's lots of cool stuff down there), there is a post on another project by artist Nina Katchadourian, recent winner of a Michael5000 Award for Excellence in Online Cartography. This one is completely unrelated to maps, but is nonetheless very cool and very entertaining. Small world, or something.
On a completely unrelated note, here's the Michael5000 Song of the Day: Sufjan Stevens performing the Innocence Mission song "Lakes of Canada" on a banjo, on the roof of a public building in Cincinnati. No, really. Check it out.
It's incandescently lovely. Or maybe that's just me. Whatever.
