The Intersection of Imagination and Desire

deep glamour

The amazing Virginia Postrel has launched a fabulous new website called DeepGlamour, which explores the magic of glamour in its many manifestations, from movies, fashion, and advertising to real estate, politics, and sports.

The intersection of imagination and desire, DeepGlamour is a spinoff of Virginia's research for a book on glamour that she is writing for The Free Press. It is her way to try out ideas, interview interesting people, and get feedback from readers. It also gives her a chance to apply my ideas about glamour to time-sensitive subjects.

In case you don't know, Virginia Postrel is the author of two must-read books: The Substance of Style and The Future and Its Enemies. She is also a contributing editor and columnist for The Atlantic Monthly. She has been an economics columnist for The New York Times, a columnist for Forbes and its companion technology magazine Forbes ASAP, and, from 1989 to 2000, the editor of Reason magazine. She is truly amazing.
