OK, I might as well put it up everywhere.
Years in the making but, spanning centuries, my first official newsletter. I finally found enough stuff that I felt was worthy of sharing. Note the snappy copy. 
My home town
Slowly going down the tubes. Hint: read the copy on the label.
Give or take 84 years
With its origins in the city of Cologne, Germany in 1709 and described by its creator as reminiscent of “a spring morning in the mountains of Italy in the middle of a field of daffodils and orange blossoms after the rain,” eau de Cologne quickly became the favored scent of the royal houses of Europe and, ultimately a generic term.
The images on this calendar were re-created from early 20th century labels, with care taken to avoid “improving” or “correcting”  the original designs and typography. The dates coincide with those of 2014.
Wishing every day of your new year to be rich with sweet and fragrant experiences.
When too much is not enough
In an effort to break away from my usual reserved and shy nature, I offer my appreciation to folks at Adobe for making some wonderful things happen. Thanks to Lisa Hanna for getting me involved (and Jeff Severtson and his crew for making my incoherent babbling look almost credible). Thank you Brenda Sutherland and Terry Hemphill for this.  And finally, thank you Soul Pancake for showing me answering my cellphone during an interview to an audience of 3000 people in the LA Convention Center at Adobe Max.
