It’s that time of year, and friends have begun sending me what I call peepnography, because they know how I feel about Peeps.
I love Peeps so much that sunny yellow Peeps were featured on the front cover of the hardback edition of my book I Shudder. I also consider this image to be my author photo.
I love Peeps because they’re delicious and because they disgust people, striking a perfect aesthetic balance.
The holy trinity: marshmallow, crystallized sugar, and food coloring.
