Weekly Roundup: What To Read This Weekend


This week: illustrated food puns, strangers packed into cars, why we misunderstand each other and more.

Art: A beautiful photographic guide to living female artists, now in their seventies, eighties and nineties, via the New York Times.

Jokes: How does a food-loving illustrator say “I love you?” With sweet illustrated food puns, of course, via Ignant.

Transportation: This photo series of strangers squished into cars together captures LA’s dependence on automobiles, via Creative Boom.

Travel: Little homes in Portugal seem to be suspended in the middle of nowhere, via Fubiz.

Style: We love noticing others noticing outfit tweaks (we have our own series here)—this is one we’re into right now, via The Cut.

Communication: It’s pretty easy to misunderstand each other—here’s why, and what to do, via The Atlantic.

Travel: 2 nights in LA + 1 private Madewell Sessions show + a stay at Palihouse West Hollywood + $1,000 dollars to shop at Madewell + a Transport Tote = our best idea yet? Enter to win The Madewell Sessions Sweeps, via us.*

Word: forelsket (n.; Norwegian): the euphoria of falling in love.
