when I recently discovered the blog 50 Watts, I felt a jolt of excitement. The website is an exhaustive collection of book-related art and design. For someone who loves to think about the minds-eye landscapes of writers, and who also loves to get lost in the beautiful, wacky, colorful and inventive work of visual artists, this blog, curated by Will Schofield, is the ultimate feast. It is a lovely reminder of how the written and visual can work together. Neither plays a mere supporting role. Instead, each medium nourishes the other in a meaningful kind of give-and-take. I encourage you to visit 50 Watts and see which pieces tempt you the most!
