Houdini, Maf the Dog, Cynic's Guide, and Geometry of Pasta


Happy Holidayz Everybawdy! Boy, BCovAnon has been a lazy ho these past two weeks, drinkin booze and eatin brisket. Thanks for putting put up with us. These gorgeous covers are from a recent trip to my favorite bookstore, 192 Books in Chelsea. Houdini is from Yale Univ Press. Kimberly Glyder designed and illustrated the Marilyn Monroe cover. A Cynic's Guide is designed by the author, Mario DiGiorgio, and Geometry of Pasta is from Quirk. Here are some heartwarming holiday thoughts from A Cynic's Guide:

That Glyder cover is just wonderful. I do hope the finishing on that one respects the design. The Pasta cover is Brilliant, but what a fucking title to work with—Pasta shapes. Could have a field day with that one...

I think Glyder's cover is on Matte with a spot gloss on the type...either way, it feels good in the store. There's a cute cartoon for that Pasta book going on at Glamazon:

Look at Houdini's eyes, wow. Wonder if they were like that naturally or if he was doing that for dramatic effect in the picture.
