Hannah Milman's Office
The sea is never far from the mind or office of Hannah Milman, executive editorial director for crafts. An arresting painting of a porbeagle shark, by artist Peter C. Thompson, leans against the wall. Beside it is a photograph of Georgia O'Keeffe collecting driftwood on Fire Island, New York. (Raymond Strout, a framer and collector of ephemera in Bar Harbor, Maine, mounted both works.) There's even a wreath made with quahog shells -- the state shell of Milman's native Rhode Island. On the shelves, spools of vintage ribbon, old candy tins, and jewelry and bakery boxes spark ideas for future product packaging.
