Underground New York Public Library is an awesome new Tumblr featuring photos of people reading while they wait for the subway. The arresting photos speak for themselves.
Long train commutes make New York one of the most literary cities in the U.S. And because New York as one of the fashion capitals of the world, you have all the ingredients you need for one very stylish documentary project.

Matteo Pugliese. Figurative Sculptures embeded in Gallery Walls.
These are just a few of many wonderful pieces by Italian sculptor Matteo Pugliese who lives and works in Milan. His bronze sculptures of men, often made from multiple components, appear to be trapped in the vertical space of gallery walls. My Star Wars-addled brain is reminded of Hans Solo encased in carbonite, though I find these aesthetically much more pleasing. (via job’s wife) (by Christopher)
