Sound the Trumpets

Today is a day for confetti, fireworks and a fanfare! (Here, confetti, as only Toulouse Lautrec could imagine it.)

Today’s the day! Encyclopedia of the Exquisite is out. Out there. On a bookshelf near you. Finally! If I could, I’d throw a full-on confetti parade and hire a trumpet and drum band to play a fanfare. That’s not only because ‘confetti’ and ‘fanfare’ are two entries in the book, but because I feel that exuberant about today’s big news.

Instead, you can check out the ticker tape Charles Lindbergh got in 1927.
