Hi it’s Geistlist again.
Unsubscribe at the bottom.
Two installments ago I told you about a PDF I designed which we sold a the Internet Archive for $32. Now it’s time to sell it to you, as a 222-page printed book, for the same price. That’s kind of the point.
Buy it on Kickstarter.
Read about it on The Nation.
Read it for free on the Open Library.
See it spin on the Brick House front page.
Fun fact: fellow Geistlist recipient David Jonathan Ross designed all the tyepfaces used in the book. He makes one a month, some on floppies.
Almost. Tomorrow. Noon. TIMEMIT. I drive to Boston, MA 5:05 AM.
It’s too late to register but keep an eye out after the coin is found.
We at Palindrome have had quite the year hiding it.
I’m on the record saying my favorite puzzle of all time was Picture Book.
I’ve decided to die on this hill: COVID testing should be about as routine as showering or using a Q-tip on your middleear even though you read on some white & light blue medical-smelling website you aren’t supposed to.
I managed to negotiate for 240 lateral flow test cartridges last week and it sucks political ass that I seem to be a at least a few people’s best or only reasonable source of finding out when it matters if they are spreading COVID or not (no matter their mask or vax status).
If you need help or advice on how tests work, hit me up. Soon they’ll be ([slightly](https://www.cms.gov/how-to-get-your-at-home-OTC-COVID-19-test-for-free)) free-ish-er. Kinda. Ugh.
Those of you who work in public policy: Abbott’s BinaxNOW LFD is made of paper, nonrigid, less than ¼-inch thick. You know: 100% certified USPS First Class Presorted material. Just an idea. For a year.
