There used to be a street named after Big Eck, but it was changed because nobody crosses Big Eck and lives.

This is my nana in her garden. I don’t know when it was taken but I am guessing the mid 1970’s when she was in her late 40’s. She loved being in her garden and she had the most love for animals that I have ever know a human being to have. She was always well dressed, well mannered and smiling. The best role model a girl can have.

I have rediscovered the work of Alvin Lustig, an American Book Designer who sadly died in 1955 at the age of 40.

The work shown is from his catalog/brochure collection. L- R from the top:
American Crayon, Catalog, 1953; Black Mountain College, Special Issue, 1946; Alta Ski Lodge, Brochure, 1942; Girl Scouts of America, Catalogs & Announcements, 1953 - 55; Lightolier, Catalog, 1952; Girl Scouts of America, Catalogs & Announcements, 1953 - 55; Lansing Sound, Catalog, 1949.

I’ve always loved Brent Couchman's work. It's nostalgic.
