Just don’t call it an inspiration board. Inspiration board sounds kind of pretentious to me. I call it the board that’s on the back of our office door where I stick things I like. (or board, for short)
Such as handwritten notes from friends. Postcards, I’m crazy about postcards.
There’s one from David Alan Harvey, sent from his Road Trips project a few months ago, it features a dinosaur, a corvette AND a picture of another postcard on it.
The chocolate croissant postcard was sent to me by Jing-Jing Lee, (who is currently in Singapore launching her very first novel.) It’s my understanding that I get to exchange this postcard for a real chocolate croissant AND a place to stay close to the cafe that makes them. (Postcards are legal and binding contracts, yes?)
Some of the other current things pinned on the board: poster draft for The Shy Oxford Writers, pictures from Hollywood and Santa Monica, Matchbook Stories-related designs, a postcard and a bookmark from Atlantis, and yes, a poster about typefaces.
