Valet shares a pic of W. David Marx’s desk:
People’s desk setups are a recurring interest of mine. I like here how Marx incorporates headphones, a mic, a voice recorder, a computer, and a scanner but books are still prominent.
He has a new book out called Status and Culture: How Our Desire for Social Rank Creates Taste, Identity, Art, Fashion, and Constant Change that looks interesting.
In addition, Valet quotes him as saying “The internet tricks you into thinking the world’s information is a click away, but really learning about something requires a depth of knowledge that can only be sourced from books.”
I like that too.
