"Book design is a process so transparent and anonymous that one sometimes wonders whether it exists at all. It's a negative quantity: a book is well-designed to the extent that it is not badly designed, rather like the preferred porridge in Goldilocks and The Three Bears that was not too hot and not too cold but just right. Confronted by such lack of definition, the designer must sometimes have doubts, and then it helps to consider the books of the past." - Richard Hendel On Book Design

this labor day weekend, you should head over to your local bookstore and pick up a cope of Dzanc Book's Best of The Web. There is a lot of great writing in that. Buy it even if only for Chris Rizzo's poem Zone which is seriously worth your time and coin.
