Our 80+ year old friend Jean Toche, who radical art historians will remember as a member of Guerrilla Art Action Group, continues to send us plenty of mail - usually a few mailings every week. Sometimes he doesn’t even bother to put anything in the envelope; he just seals it and writes his latest pronouncement on the front, on the back, or both!

Rudy’s Library in Monowi, Nebraska – one of the many soul-warming photographs in Robert Dawson’s visual love letter to public libraries:

The entire population of this town consists of one woman, Elsie Eller. It is the only incorporated municipality in the United States with such a demographic. She acts as mayor and runs the only business in town, a local roadhouse. Over the years she watched all the other town residents move or pass away. When her husband, Rudy Eller, died in 2004, she became the town’s last resident. Because Rudy had collected so many books, she decided to open Rudy’s lLIbrary in a small shed next to her home. This memorial to Rudy is free and open to all. Patrons can check out books by signing a notebook. A wooden sign in the corner simply states “Rudy’s Dream.”

More such treats here.

Really nice to see our group Temporary Services included in the middle of the piece Untitled (Diagram of Influences) by Ginger Brooks Takahashi from 2013. The piece documents the influences that impacted the projet MOBILIVRE-BOOKMOBILE project that Takahashi was part of. The project influenced us, in turn, and we included it our book Mobile Phenomena. Takahashi’s piece is part of the excellent exhibit Alien She, currently on view at Vox Populi in Philadelphia.
