A Barry Blitt Interview I Missed

Luckily the Design Observer just brought this Barry Blitt interview out of their archive and re-posted it.  I missed it when it was originally posted in December of 2017.  And lucky forThe Spill, it caught the eye (and ear) of a friend who’s in the design biz up Beantown way  — I thank him for it.
