I like art and I like books and I'm always finding interesting stuff on the internet about the two together. So I thought I'd introduce a new little recurring section in the newsletter called "Art & Books."

That way I can share things like this neat little video of Amy Krouse Rosenthal talking about decorating her home with books—book sculptures, book art, and even a jacket made from her book jackets. Or the story of Artist Brian Deter, who carves and sculpts books. His work is amazing. Here's a TED Talk he gave in which he describes what he does. This is a great video of him at work, and here's a bunch of his work, by year.

Anyway, I can't get enough of this stuff, so don't be surprised when it pops up in subsequent emails from time-to-time. And who knows: You might learn something… like why knights fought snails in the margins of medieval books! (Here's more on the subject from the British Library.)

I do remember the crackers and mustard, however… and the urinals (they're very old and weirdly gigantic, but then again, it did open for business in 1862.) Here's a video walk-through of "McSorley's Old Ale House."

About Me

Hi. I’m D.E.Uhlig. I’m an artist, author, husband and father.

For as long as I can remember, I have loved to draw. Years ago I gave my wife a hand-drawn card for our anniversary, and she loved it so much she made me promise to ALWAYS hand-draw her cards. Then our three kids made me promise to do the same with their birthday cards. And when I posted some of my drawings online, people began asking how they could purchase my work—so I created this newsletter. I believe in something I like to call “The Happiness of Art” and I hope it makes you smile.
