I bought a big, beautiful, and fairly expensive book for myself with a bit of birthday money and proceeds from bandcamp friday (thanks so much to everyone on the fediverse who bought stuff, btw. As always it's humbling and inspirational.)
It feels terribly indulgent on the one hand, but on the other it's paying it forward to another creative (it's a catalog from a photography exhibit) and will be direct inspiration for the @magicians project.
The internet has replaced the need for a lot of coffee table books, but there are still circumstances where there's just no substitute.
