Saturday, the Handmade Holiday Market gives you a chance to check out the work of local artists and craftspeople like
Glørud Design, Dave Hanlon, Karin Kramer and more at the Duluth Folk School.

Annie's art book recommendations continue this week with a tome called Monograph by Chris Ware.  The promotional copy actually reads "A flabbergasting experiment in publishing hubris, Monograph charts the art and literary world's increasing tolerance for the language of the empathetic doodle directly through the work of one of its most esthetically constipated practitioners."
