Its me! Your fellow human and IFIAAR director, financial officer, HR, and sole employee, Aidan. I have the smallest of updates this month.

IFIAAR has just released its first set of artist edition bookmarks by artists Brook Hsu and Somnath Bhatt!
Wow I am so incredibly pleased by these and they have already begun to live in the countless unfinished books I have lying around my home. Beautifully printed in Oakland by Strange Cessations, edition of 100 each. They are live and available in the store now :-) Each one comes with a small newsprint booklet containing a list of online, independent bookshops to inspire you to crawl away from the corporate pigs (no offense to pigs!) that swallow you up in their marketplace wallows.

This will be an ongoing edition series! Collect them all! Think of all the books you can preserve your spot in...
I had a long winding personal narrative prepared but upon inspection don't feel like its needs this space right now. My own mind is rather absorbed with the fires in California and the fires politically across the nation. So I've shelved the draft and am offering this link-list of independent online bookshops (the same included in the bookmark booklet) to browse at your disposal! It's an important time to support small businesses and read!
