I like to think of all these books I collect as “historical documents” (quote-unquote). This one was particularly cool for having an actual historical document hidden within its pages. A 1967 draft notice:
I’m going to see if I can find the original recipient of this notice in case he wants it back!
Who doesn’t love zooming boxes?
(The Hatier logo is pretty cool, too.)
Here’s something a little different—and older—than I usually feature. But still very graphic and abstract cover in its own way. The back (second shot, detail) retains more of the gold stamping it originally had.
Not a how-to book. Cover art by Johanna Sperl.
Strange one. The layout on the front is a little random, almost cool. The inside is totally typewritten, but the cover’s really printed—maybe done ahead of time and then quickly bound after the conference? Dunno. But I like the little graphic composition.
Something a little different. I know it had a jacket of some kind at one point (someone cut off the flaps and taped them inside!), but I like it this way, with the stamped water and blind-embossed rocks.
From Chile. Bad printing. Bad paper. So good.
This type is really nice, too:
