did you know...

...that L. Frank Baum, author of The Wonderful Wizard of Oz, was commissioned in the 1940's to design department stores and malls? They wanted to create a sense of stepping into another world, and apparently Baum had all these great ideas! Weird. I never knew he was anything more than an author - a good one, mind you.

Ah, the incredible things I'm learning from this book.
