One of my favorite annual New Year’s activities is to read the entire New York Time’s magazine of obituaries. They highlight a collection of people you knew died and a bunch of characters who fell through the cracks, mostly because they weren’t famous anymore. This year I learned about people I should have known more about, like Richard Holbrooke and George Steinbrenner. They made a beautiful website for this year’s collection, and Mother New York made remarkable monograms for each person.
