OK, fine, but the Academy's holiday postcard was just as odd. It featured an excerpt from "Winter Trees" by William Carlos Williams, including this line: "Thus having prepared their buds ..." The graphic consisted of four decorated trees that at a quick glance resembled another kind of bud. You know what I'm talking about. See for yourself.
But maybe it's just me. I do a lot of designing myself so I notice these things. In any case, I can't wait to see what AAP sends me next.
