Recommended Reading / 06.

Every Monday (or holiday-after Tuesday), words to start the week.

This weekExcerpts from a new book about tattoos and the tales behind them. Pen & Ink, by Isaac Fitzgerald and Wendy MacNaughton, includes stories from writers Lena Dunham and Cheryl Strayed, illustrator Carson Ellis, and Raymond "Shrimp Boy" Chow, the Dragon Head of the Chinese Freemasons. It's delightful — and, luckily for everyone, a chef-centric sequel, Knives & Ink, is in the works. Find out more, here.

Three more links, just because:
-Camel as cartographer.
-How to Drink All Night, In a Classy Way.
-More reading recommendations, from 50 cultural icons (Dolly Parton loves The Little Engine That Could; Donald Glover reads about kids with Aspergers; David Bowie has a hundred favorites).

More recommended reading, here. Image via Pen & Ink: Tattoos and the Stories Behind Themby Isaac Fitzgerald and Wendy MacNaughton.
