really liked it
Read from April 11 to May 01, 2012

The importance of snack biscuits, the dignity of transmission towers, the tranquil beauty of logistics warehouses at night. Above all, the minds, hands, fingers, and hearts of those (like us!) who dedicate their days making the things that the world consumes without a tenth of a thought. This book is a dedication to the producers and their products, and brought a new sense of wonder to my days - to whom am I connected as I type these words on this keyboard? What shoes did they wear, in what factory, and in which state?
