The VQ, No Byline

(New year catch-up post, one of five.)

In the summer 2009 issue of the Quarterly, which shipped back in June: I wrote the copy for the “Hidden Histories” feature (which, unfortunately, doesn’t look nearly as good online as it does in the fully designed two spreads it takes up in the printed magazine). I chose not to give myself a byline—the story is just credited to “The Editors”—but since there’s only one editor on the masthead for this issue, I’m assuming that readers could figure out (if they wanted to) that the editors who wrote the article is me.

I’m proud of the heds I came up with for this issue—especially “The Importance of Earning Interest,” “The Very Model of a Major Modern Architect,” and “Charities of Fire.”
