BluePrintReview nominations: Pushcart

October brought a first reflection of the year with the BluePrintreview Sundress nominations. A month later, it was time for the Pushcart letter. Again, such a task, but also so beautiful to revisit the previous issues, and to be able to put a letter together that starts with the words "It's a pleasure to nominate the following texts.."
