    Invasive Species by Dillon Marsh

    In 1996 a palm tree appeared almost overnight in a suburb of Cape Town. This was the world’s first ever disguised cell phone tower.

    Since then, these trees have spread across the city, South Africa and the rest of the world. Invasive Species explores the relationship between the environment and the disguised towers of Cape Town and its surroundings.

    Vintage Edition Scrabble
    via Restoration Hardware

    In the 1930s, during the Great Depression, an unemployed architect named Alfred M. Butts invented a board game using letter tiles and a scoring system. He first called it Lexico, then Criss Cross Words, but it was in 1948, when he teamed with entrepreneur James Brunot, that the name Scrabble® was born. The game’s wild popularity began in the ’50s and continues today. Over 100 million Scrabble games have been sold worldwide.

    My true love.
