  • Funny, just read this yesterday in Sontag’s “Regarding the Pain of Others”:

    “(It would be inconceivable to Woolf … that one day her face would become a much-reproduced image on T-shirts, coffee mugs, book bags, refrigerator magnets, mouse pads.)”

  • Who makes those beautiful shirts?

  • Jason Diamond

    I’m pretty sure they were made by a band called Princeton. They put out an EP all about Bloomsbury a few years back.

    Brennen: yeah, that quote seemed to foreshadow that (among other things) New Yorker cover from a few weeks back.

  • Shit, yeah, Jason, on the NYer cover. My brain hadn’t turned the screw that far.

  • Jason Diamond

    Yeah, but your mention of the Sontag quote fits nicely alongside the illustration.
