Uncovering the Cool; What Shelby Likes
"Lately, I've been taking a break from fiction and I've been challenging myself with White Trash: The 400-Year Untold History of Class in America by Nancy Isenberg."
"When that gets too arduous, I've been switching over to Evicted: Poverty and Profit in the American City by Matthew Desmond, which is nonfiction but written like a story vs. an essay."
"I really can't ever hear the Arthur Russell album "Love Is Overtaking Me" too many times..."
"And just like everyone else in America, I love Cardi B's "Invasion Of Privacy!"
"I really love the crew of people I keep around me:
My studiomate Elizabeth Kovach @saltybroadpress is an amazing women-focused screen printer."
"My friend Jenna Blazevich @vichcraft runs her own feminist apparel company."
"My buddy Francesca Gabrielle @quasinu_ is a gifted stylist and vintage clothing buyer."
"...Sweet pal Camilo Medina @camilo.m3dina is making insane art."
"...as well as the lovely Kyle Letendre @heykyle."
"And of course my wonderful partner Julian Baker @theywillseemee is an ephemera archivist and talented painter and designer.
Thanks and thanks again for all the great recs, Shelby!
