Save as Many as You Ruin

Design

In 2009, Van Booy's collection of short stories, Love Begins in Winter, was launched at Partners & Spade[23] in New York City, a studio and storefront which "produces films, books, apparel, and conceptual products as well as marketing and branding projects for select corporate clients." For the launch, Van Booy was the curator of an exhibition of props and dioramas of dramatic scenes from his short story collection, and the collection included custom-made stethoscopes (containing quotes from Van Booy's stories) and vintage Renault workshop posters, all designed by Van Booy. Since 2009, Partners & Spade have carried Van Booy's "custom vintage Antarctic explorers' skis,"[24] and cold-weather hats, which he designed to support research in Antarctic regions and raise awareness for the Scott Polar Research Institute at University of Cambridge.
