thank you. my monograph is getting a great start!

Oh boy, it is December already. My kids book is about to get finished. (I should be able to talk more about it soon. ) So, I am finally taking an afternoon off and updating my site.

Exciting news is that more than my family and best friends have picked up copies of my first monograph. So, those who you did, thank you thank you thank you thank you.

If you are planning on asking Santa, please visit publisher Gestalten’s online store or Amazon.com in your country. Or, better yet, order at your local book store. I have heard of a sighting at MOMA book store, which is an exciting news for me!

If you are New York City (book) store and stock the books, and if you want me to do a signing, or simply to stop by to sign the copies, I will be more than happy to discuss the details, so please contact me.
