Here’s an idea for pumpkin-carving-time, courtesy of William Burroughs. Now I just need to find a rusty, dull butcher’s knife to do it with.

Tonight’s captivating foodie read: COWGIRL CREAMERY COOKS by Sue Conley and Peggy Smith (on sale at the end of October, from @ChronicleBooks).

Ina Garten says, “Sue and Peggy produce some of the greatest cheeses in the United States and run one of the best cheese shop, and now they’ve shared with us a world of knowledge we can bring home to our own kitchens … I can’t wait to cook my way through their gorgeous book!”

Here it is! You CLAMORED for it and you got it, courtesy of Sassy fan Remyrogue - the Twin Peaks fashion spread from the October 1990 issue of Sassy Magazine.

PLEASE do not remove the Flickr attribution or re-upload this photo set. Remy LeBeau worked very hard to track down this magazine and share these images with us! I know there is very little I can do to stop you from doing these things but heed my words - stealing is not the Sassy Magazine way.

So this is where I’ve been all weekend - hanging with my bookseller and publisher compadres. It’s been an amazing three days!

An advance copy of the quite-literally enchanting BALLAD by Blexbolex is here. I was pretty amazed by the digital art I used to sell the book all summer, but nothing prepared me for the massive book lust this tiny book awakened.

It ships next month.
