Notes from the Rabbit Hole in Ohio
posted:
Don't expect any fast returns on election reports from here.  It is no surprise that  it shows our precincts are still open counting votes given the dramatic shifts of how Ohio runs its elections.  The last election was conducted with brand new digital booths.  This time it is the opposite, almost comic...the physical ballot was 8"x14", type size was about 20 point lettering and the circles about 1/2 ovals.  We used ballpoint pens to darken the circles and had to slip the
GIANT ballot into a box secretly into 10inch slot with a giant hard cardboard cover.   Did anyone else have this experience?  No one will know until morning what the outcome is so sleep well.

When I was in NY last week I stopped by to see Jo Oberowski over at Barnes and Noble who art directed the Dante book.  Here are some pics of the finish.  I also got the chance to check out Marcs beautiful Grimms fairytale book, but unfortunately the pictures were out of focus...I must have been mesmerized by the beauty.
