I am excited to announce a new edition with 6 Decades Books. This is from their website:
In the neighborhood near the 6 Decades shop dealers in counterfeit handbags do a brisk business. It’s illegal, of course, and the actual bags are kept in a secret room somewhere out of sight, so if you want to see the merchandise you’ll first be shown a small laminated booklet filled with tiny images of the various models available. 6 Decades was (with some difficulty) able to obtain one of these booklets and Jason Polan has now used it as the basis of his latest artists’ book. In format it is a precise facsimile of the original, but in Polan's version every bag has been drawn by hand. 6 Decades is pleased to announce Every Counterfeit Handbag on Canal Street, a new publication by Jason Polan, is available beginning today. Each copy is signed and numbered and the book is FREE, but you must come by in person to pick it up at the 6 Decades / Boo-Hooray Holiday shop where it will be available exclusively, now through December 23. Sorry, only one copy per person.
I hope you have a chance to get over there to the shop! They have so many terrific things.

You can go to the Museum of Modern Art and walk up to the second floor and find the big Keith Haring painting and look at it really closely and think about how you are as close to it as he was and then walk over to the silver floored room and pick up a piece of Félix González-Torres candy from the ground and walk into the dark room to your left and open the candy quietly and sneak it in your mouth in the little hallway without the guard noticing and watch the movie Deadpan by Steve McQueen for as long as you would like.

The Warby Parker Holiday Spectacle Bazaar is open!!
When was the last time you were able to read a book by Ricky Jay while getting a custom made letter-pressed snowshoe walking yeti holiday card while trying on a new pair of glasses while standing in a yurt!?!
Everybody get down to 45 Grand Street (if you are not too far away!) and check out some of the terrific things they have going on there. A bunch of great people involved from:
Best Made Company
Colorado Yurt Company
The Delancey Street Foundation
