  1. What marvellous covers, I’ll be getting those for the library and myself. Of course I already have a few different editions of these laying around. Thanks for the heads up!

  2. Posters!
    Tony Millionaire’s Moby Dick

    Michael Cho’s White Noise

    As for BJD… it’s been in print since 1999, has been popular enough to support sequels, and was well reviewed. In a 2003 poll of 1,900 British women, it was the favorite novel of women under 40 (Pride and Prejudice was the favorite of older women).

    In related news, the Library of America will be publishing a handsome two-volume set of Lynd Ward’s graphic novels, edited by Art Spiegelman.

  3. These are horrible

    The art by itself is sometimes okay, but the style of almost all of them is so utterly inappropriate for the content the books. The only one that comes close to working is the Communist Manifesto art, it retains the bold lines and simple colours of Soviet-era propaganda posters but is too chaotic, whimsical and surreal to really fit what is quite a level-headed and real-world minded piece of work.
