Hi Friends,

Design Observer Quarterly just published a lovely piece on the suitcases.  I would encourage any of you who are still interested in the project to check it out.

Here is a link to a post I did on my wordpress site.   

The link will tell you how to order a copy.  Or you can go directly to the Design Observer site.

Thanks,   Jon

      I was a backer of the original Kickstarter project. And have just run across a book on the same topic:

      The Lives They Left Behind: Suitcases from a State Hospital Attic Paperback – January 1, 2009
      (Darby Penney (Author), Peter Stastny (Author), Lisa Rinzler (Photographer), Robert Whitaker (Introduction)

      Does this work overlap with you?

      Irregardlessly, Sincere, Amy
