Swan song of the Plectostoma snail


Long story short from the March 31, 2014 New York Times:


A group of tiny snails with striking, irregularly coiled and ornamented shells are going extinct just as they are being discovered. A new paper reveals 10 new species (and catalogs all 31 species) of the snail, which belong to the genus Plectosoma. Found only in the limestone hills of Southeast Asia, with shells only a few millimeters long, the snails are losing their homes as the limestone is quarried by mining companies.

Minimalist Book Rack


From the website:



This book rack is a multipurpose accessory.


Each item's foundation is a wall-mounted piece: the rack itself.


The rack is designed to be able to take on any type of pin.


In that way today's book rack can double as tomorrow's coat or bedside rack, simply by mixing and matching the pins to suit whatever purpose fits best for the specific space it is placed in.


From $115.
