On Sunday, after running 4 miles through the Harlem Hills in the rain (it was practically uphill both ways), Hallie and I ventured downtown to SoHo to see the Rifle Paper Company popup shop showcasing the new Garance Dore collection. I have been a fan of Rifle Paper for many years and I love that the company is so successful and the cards etc so easily accessible now. The popup shop was full of people who managed to look impeccable despite the deluge outside–so Hallie and I clearly blended well in our bright raincoats and sneakers.

On Sunday, I went to church and then stopped at the Strand to pick up the gem below. I had a copy of this book many years ago (it may have been a gift for my father which was appropriated). It is quelle tattered now and the pages are falling out from so much use. I can’t wait to reaquaint myself with my favorite characters.
