Dept. of Enthusiasm is a weekly email from me, Jez Burrows, a British designer, illustrator, and writer living in Seattle, WA.

Every weekend I'll tell you about one thing I love, in no more than a few enthusiastic paragraphs. Maybe a song, maybe a city, maybe a single sentence.

Occasionally I'll tell you about something I'm working on. Maybe a book, maybe a print, maybe a playlist of songs whose titles would score highly on a Scrabble board ('Jezebel' by Iron & Wine? That's a 125-point Bingo with a Triple Word Score).
