Marshall's work has been featured on The Morning News and File Magazine sites. The print features a photo from Marshall's upcoming gallery show.

If you're looking for web hosting, Textdrive "is a hosting company run by and for people who love publishing on the web". Did I mention *for life*?

Eastgate is serious about hypertext, but recognizes the need for other methods of storing data and telling stories. The handmade Italian journals they sell are absolutely gorgeous.

Each month, you'll receive a signed limited edition 5x7 print of one of Heather's photographs.

I haven't seen the book, but from the photos and description online, it looks beautiful, wonderfully made, and a little crazy. I want one of these myself.

FeedDemon is an award-winning newsreader for Windows.

Threadless sells shirts and over the past two years, has supplied a good chunk of my wardrobe.
