I love Jack White, and the White Stripes, and basically every thing he is associated with. For the record, that's about a million things.
Although we have Detroit in common, White is just such a talented force and I'm always impressed by his latest endeavor. And I'm super impressed by the newest project because it involves books.
Third Man Records had previously issued two books, but has now created an extension of the company dedicated solely to publishing–Third Man Books. Their first project is Language Lessons, Volume 1 and it is beautiful. Of course.
The box set includes a really great looking hardbound book filled with contemporary poetry and prose, as well as two vinyl LPs and five pieces of artwork. So yes, you can read Language Lessons while listening to Language Lessons while sitting in a room filled with Language Lessons. Obsessive.
Language Lessons is currently available for pre-sale ($50) and will be available in stores August 5.
