One evening this weekend, I passed by one of my favorite local design shops here in San Francisco, FLIPP (Fashionable Living in Petite Places), and couldn't help but notice the window display. On a settee next to a vintage portrait of Abraham Lincoln, the shopkeepers set a copy of The Audacity of Hope by Barack Obama — a subtle and handsome way to show political support. Considering that Obama's challenges ahead are being compared to those of Lincoln, it's also quite appropriate. Maybe this title will never find its way into your home, but I think we can all take a note from this image: with a little staging, perhaps sans the paper sleeves on our hardbacks, books can have a decorative effect in our homes, all the while making a statement.
