Yesterday I had the pleasure of being the artist-in-residence at the Ace Hotel. I decided to find out what all the beautiful people were reading in the lobby on a lazy Sunday afternoon.
A big thanks to Tumblr & the kind staff at Ace Hotel — especially for the free cookies* in my room.
*Those were free, right?
