Welcome Virginia Postrel readers.... yes, I'm a big fan of Virginia Postrel. I've read The Substance of Style as well as The Future and It's Enemies. Virginia is critically acclaimed and has a very loyal following, but her sales aren't what they could be. She seems to be a little bummed about this. The Substance of Style is now available in paperback... a perfect gift for the wonk or the artist or designer in your life!
Update: I fixed the spelling of "Postrel" in the title... duh... also, FYI, Ms. Postrel linked to this post of mine a few months ago.
