Save Yourself From Love
As you might know, Grace passed away last year at the age of 84 (we'll have more on her life later today). Fidelity is a collection of Paley's last poems, which sound as vital to me as talking with my friends over drinks--the topics include communication between sibling, joy at walking the streets of New York, and the strange paths of relationships.
Perhaps because of this chummy feeling I felt with Grace, I had originally intended for this downloadable poster take a slightly different turn. In fact the original email to the designer contained this lovely line of description:
Clearly, I had been spending too much time thinking about the upcoming Murakami exhibit at the Brooklyn Museum and scrolling the pages of Etsy, and not nearly enough time thinking about what might appeal to, you know, ACTUAL OTHER PEOPLE. Thank goodness I had a really smart designer, who understand that they should never listen to a creative writing major for advice about design.
