Every Christmastime since 1992, I have created a commonplace book as a gift for friends and loved ones. A commonplace book is customarily a collection of literary quotations and musings organized alphabetically. My versions incorporate poems, cartoons, photographs I’ve taken, and dirty pictures from the internet. They’re fun to make and fun to read. Recipients of the limited edition hard copies tend to treasure them, but I also make them available online. I just posted the 2012 edition, called milk from other animals. You can view it page by page at that link, or you can download the PDF here — it may take a few minutes to download but viewing it on an iPad is probably the best possible way to read the book. Be forewarned: there are any number of, ahem, adult images on the pages so clicking on any of these things is acknowledgement that you are over 18 and have learned to dress yourself. Check it out and let me know what you think.
