A Tribute to Abe Nathanson
Abe was a friend. One whom I saw far too rarely, what with all his projects and mine.
But whenever we encountered each other our conversations ranged far and wide. From his childhood selling fruit with his father in Pawtucket, to his design training, to his photographs and travels. And often Abe spoke of his family. Abe was inventive and fun and endlessly curious.
When I first encountered Bananagrams, I was delighted to discover it was created in Providence, and even more so to learn it was one of Abe’s genius ideas. So simple, so focused, so fun.
