and the winter below
Here's an attempt at a seasonal website, built mostly from our 2018 acquisitions. It's a first effort with Shopify, as a possible alternative to the e-commerce model that's been beaten-into-our-brains by the ABEs and amazons of the world. Cultural software, because the Cloud forgets. The Charlotte of the site comes from Charlotte Baudouin, the partner of Charles Péguy. Without Charlotte, Péguy would never have opened his Socialist bookshop in Paris and the Dreyfusards may never have had the space to coalesce. Later, in those first days of the Great War, as Charles tended to the bullet in his forehead, Charlotte set-about founding a charity for the support of the coming widows and orphans of France.
