I get excited when I hear of new ways authors and publishing companies (like Visual Editions) are working to make print more innovative, especially in a time where everyone is busy reading stupid Fifty Shades of Gray on their effing Kindles. Pulitzer Prize winner Richard Russo (have we ever talked about how much I love Empire Falls?) and his daughter, illustrator Kate Russo, have teamed up to create a neatly packaged box called Interventions, which includes a set of four pieces of writing and an accompanying print. Russo says that the stories, including one unpublished novella, focus on human obsession and "marry" print and writing.
Check out a short video interview of the two from WLBZ Bangor (so random):
