Reading should be an elegant, planned experience
Whether you read mostly on your phone, your computer, tablet the experience should be a pleasurable one.
HI, I’m Barry and I’ve been a writer for a few decades, but a reader for much longer and I care deeply about the entire experience of reading. I’d much rather make time and space for reading than just read on-the-fly. I think that’s why I have difficulty reading on airplanes and in airports.
There are many types of reading experiences, but for me, they come down to these two described as dining experiences:
- The Hotdog Eating Contest ~ during which you stuff your cerebral gullet with as much information as possible in a very brief time. Like the results of the hotdog eating contest, you’re left wondering why you did it at all.
- The Afternoon Tea – when you’re seated comfortably, perhaps by a window, while sipping your favorite hot beverage as you take in not only the content before you but the texture of the experience itself.
These two experiences couldn’t be further apart.
My publications create an elegant and pleasurable experience
As a writer, I care about creating content that helps you learn new things and draws you deeper into topics you care about. My publications create a visual experience that combines both well-researched content and artisanal design.
As a micropublisher, I create micromagazines that are a treat for the eye and the intellect. My latest is called R I S T R E T T O ~ a micromagazine for coffee lovers.
