We have very short attention spans at PaperCity, so catch Curate while it’s open — till the last bells toll in 2012. Curate, the PaperCity book and curiosity shop, stocks most predominately hundreds of the hottest tomes from the worlds of design, architecture, art, fashion, gardening and pop culture, including many signed books (by Miles Redd, Amanda Nisbet, Thom Filicia, Kelly Klein and more); vintage books from David Hicks, Cornelia Guest (our muse) and Billy Baldwin; and design books from the library of the late Paige Rense, Architectural Digest’s tenacious editrix in chief. There are also bits of taxidermy, Hybrid plates, platters and bowls where chinoiserie design is fused with American hunting scenes; artist Henri Gadbois’ faux foods; and more. Meet Thom Filicia Tuesday, December 4, 7 to 9 pm, when he signs his new book American Beauty. 1141-03 Uptown Park Boulevard (next to Paul Carter Jewels); firstname.lastname@example.org.
