my name isĀ james phillips williams. most everyone calls me jp. i have been a designer in new york for 20 years at 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.
