Books at work (part of an ongoing series) :

   —  from Jacob Macmurray, "an intern in the design department at the Payseur & Schmidt Seattle Office. . . . Mostly my design books, sf reference, pulps, and misc."


I enjoyed reading the latest P&S title :  And Now We Are Going To Have a Party : Liner Notes from a Writer’s Life  by Nicola Griffith. And right now I am signing off to return to Our Mutual Friend  by Charles Dickens.

What Can be Saved from the Wreckage ?
It’s 4:30 a.m. on Monday 1 October, the special copies of Michael Swanwick’s new book What Can be Saved from the Wreckage ? are all bound ; the presentation copies will be sent out today and subscribers will receive their copies in the next several days.
In designing the binding, I interpreted the title literally and so each of the 17 copies includes a bifolium leaf signed by Cabell, with a binding of salvaged boards and (where possible) endsheets of the original Storisende edition.


I will be away from regular e-mail for the next while, so there will be no new entries : read a book or walk in the woods instead . . .

This creaking and constantly evolving blog of the endless bookshelf : I expect that some entries will be brief, others will take the form of more elaborate essays, and eventually I will become adept at incorporating photos or comments and interactivity. Right now you’ll have to send links to me, dear readers. [HW]
