my name isĀ james phillips williams. most everyone calls me jp. i have been a designer in new york for 20 years at design mw. i started this blog at the urging of my friends and fellow designers who were familiar with my manic collecting. my collections are varied but generally have to do with typography or design. i endeavor to find what’s Viagra special in the mundane and highlight what makes it so to me. i hope you will concur!

this blog would not have happened without my good friend laura silverman, a writer with amazing ideas who always finds the right word for every occasion. laura functions as the editor of amassblog and hopefully as a contributor from time to time. she collects, too.
