Bookstore finds

On a hunt to find my wallet today, I came across a sidewalk sale at The Book Table, a small bookshop in the town I work in. I picked up "The Gang That Wouldn't Write Straight" for $4.

As usual, the cover caught my attention first and the content made me commit to a purchase. The jacket is by Tamaya Perry and I think it works really well for the subject here. I just finished "Eat the City" (review coming soon!) and am on a non-fiction kick now so another journalism book was just what I was looking for.

I also found two covers with lettering by Jessica Hische: Augusten Burroughs' "This Is How" and Dave Eggers' "A Hologram for the King". I have to say both of these were a lot more impressive in person, likely because of the mirror treatment on "This Is How" and the gold shine on "Hologram".

Great work from Jessica as usual. And it's always nice to see designs in person that you liked online. PRINT4LIFE.

Sidenote: a police officer just returned the contents of my wallet to my apartment, minus the actual wallet itself. Super grateful to have everything back though.
