Most "things" in the world are made in China, and by things I mean consumer products. Nothing says consumerism like Christmas, and one had to wonder at some point where all the Xmas decorations come from. Well, 60% of the world's Christmas decorations are made in around 600 factories in Yiwa, China. Don't tell your kids. These aren't elves hard at work.

The Criterion Collection is the argument for owning "things," and by "things" we mean a library of DVDs that act like an art book collection or vinyl LP collection. They make the best films better, take forgotten cult classics and illuminate their importance, and put their carefully edited films in a historical perspective. And now, after years of preserving the concept of film, there is a new "Criterion Designs" book to capture the art behind the archival products.
