Olivetti in your pocket? Edigio Bonfante, Poster, 1953. Lithograph mounted on canvas.

Happy New Year! (I think Jan. 11 still counts for that?) I’m thrilled to announce our stellar new lineup of columnists for the season. We had a fantastic time at a kickoff dinner last night, and I’m delighted I get to spend the next few months in their warm and intelligent company.

Please welcome writer, curator, and educator Tirza True Latimer; artist Tucker Nichols; writer, editor, and U.K. transplant Tess Thackara; multidisciplinary artist Charlene Tan; and the illustrious Steven Wolf, former newspaper reporter and the founder of Steven Wolf Fine Arts.

You know it! They’re going to be genius. Do welcome them, talk back to them when you can, and help them feel at home. As always, our columnists here are in an “editorial free zone” — I never know exactly what they will do, I look forward to seeing what they will do, and I hope you’ll enjoy their work here, too.
