Pica & Numenius
A joint blog written by Pica and Numenius started in 2003 and flourishing through 2015, now being resurrected in 2021
The archive of a collaborative space to think, write, draw, photograph, and otherwise ponder on the nature of place. 2003–2005
Pica takes her cue from Pica nuttalli, the endemic magpie of central California, chatty and alighting on gleaming things.
Numenius is a geographer by training and temperament. He is a Bay Area native, and grew up roaming the East Bay hills.
