Found by Davy Rothbart

Found by Davy Rothbart: This book is kind of amazing. Yes, it’s filled with assorted found items (mostly handwritten notes), but what gets me is how it looks like the whole thing was laid out by hand and photocopied, like a higher-quality version of a zine. It’s also not the sort of thing you can just casually flip through. I found myself repeatedly sucked into the stories of these strangers, at times sad and hilarious and maddening – sometimes simultaneously. It’s inspired me to look down from time to time to see what treasures lay at my feet. I also have a couple things I may yet send in.

P.S. – Merry Christmas! May you find joy today. :)
