Emily Flake on How to Live

Emily Flake, a cartoonist at the magazine, relaxes by falling into eBay wormholes. This week she shares her recent finds: “The Importance of Living,” a popular philosophy text by Lin Yutang, originally published in 1937, and a 1949 issue of the magazine Holiday, which she loves for its beautiful illustrations, its generous format, and its distinctively readable tone, which she describes as “between chummy and erudite.”
