In Brief: Of Icebergs and EDARs

icebergs.jpg⇒ Over at our bookish brother blog, Galleycat, the sharp-eyed Ron Hogan spots two book covers with the same distinctively shadowed iceberg photo. The chilling coincidence? The books were released only weeks apart—by the same publishing house.

⇒ What do you get when you cross a shopping cart and a pop-up camper? A mobile shelter known as an EDAR, which stands for Everyone Deserves a Roof and is not to be confused with the similarly named (yet not nearly as agile) government repository for regulatory filings. A feature in today’s Los Angeles Times explores the EDAR and its development as an alternative to cardboard box dwellings. The design was the winner in a contest at the Art Center College of Design sponsored by philanthropist and film producer Peter Samuelson. The slogan of Samuelson’s EDAR Foundation? “Thinking outside the box.”
