Keep Food Away From Reading Material


• Oscar Wilde's copy of W.H. Mallock's The New Republic has a jam stain on page 30 (as I learned via Jenny Davidson's Light Reading). Biographer Thomas Wright wrote that Wilde "gorged himself on books and food simultaneously."
• The inverse, in a way: Ed Ruscha's 1966 painting, Annie Poured from Maple Syrup (above).
