Tania comes to us via former FRIer, photographer and worldly New Yorker, Ward Roberts. She's rather electric and feeds us with some wonderfully considered and alternative FRIs. Enjoy. Catch her bubbly insta accounts: @thewriting @the_cakeface
Tania Debono an Australia currently based in New York. She's the multimedia artist behind the 'art brand' TheWriting a pseudo nickname for her lettering work, which had remained highly anonymous until recently. With an eye for a simplistic aesthetic, her ambition is to create art through words, penning down inspired truths, cliches and catchphrases overheard in conversations on the streets or created in her mind.

I love simple, clean food .. and their eggs-any-style with a diner style drip coffee is my go-to daily
Lately I've become obsessed with how people have their eggs

Your FRI: SANT AMBROEUS
The guys behind the bar know each and every recipe, they make a proper whiskey sour... but better yet, they actually make a really good apperol sour (my latest and favorite drink) Also, if you're ever in New York, this place is the place you go to get the best coffee in all of manhattan.

I love the magazine but the app is perfect for that in-between time, and there's a time limit on each article which is perfect for me when I'm in no mood to choose.
