The NY Times has a piece on Mark Kurlansky's new book about Oysters and New York City. It also describes his next two books, one on non-violence and the other on food writing commissioned by the Works Progress Administration. He hops all over the place, that Kurlansky guy.

I adore the WPA art done to promote national parks, like this one for Lassen. They also made some pretty rad World War 2 propaganda posters. Here is a comprehensive site from the Library of Congress on the posters.
