Here’s a collection of essays gathered around the new September 11 memorial in NYC:
- At the Edge of the Abyss by Martin Filler
- All the Names: Algorithmic Design and the 9/11 Memorial
- The Human Face of Type by Edward Mendelson
In other reading, I’m in Book XVI of the Iliad and I’ve started The House of the Seven Gables (which it’s a museum now, of course). I can tell already that I need to read more Hawthorne. How did I get through high school without reading him? Maybe I just faked it with Cliff’s Notes, I don’t remember.
