Monday Distraction

killersofthedreamLots of vintage book covers to explore at Alexander Budnitz’s site, including the deeply strange one at left. It’s from 1963 and was designed by George Giusti.

Speaking of book covers, my friend Patrick Borelli will be hosting his show “You Should Judge a Book By Its Cover,” during which he mocks terrible designs, in Brooklyn on April 13. He’ll be joined this time by the very funny Dan Kennedy and Julie Klausner, as well as award-winning designer Evan Gaffney. (It’s likely that Gaffney is also funny, but I can’t say for sure.)
