Special Orders

The tiny type says "poems". Click to enlarge.

This is Knopf book - I'm still not sure of the designer. Anyone know?

I like the fact that this is a cardboard box, but the designer has done something unconventional with it. The box isn't open or cut in the usual way, which makes it enigmatic.

Absolutely Fabulous! Not sure who the designer it Robin Bilardello? Milan Bozic? Greg Kulick?

Glamazon says:
For years it's been Andy Green's job to stump students nationwide by coming up with the wrong answers for their multiple-choice tests. Recently, however, his own life has become overwhelmed by wrong choices. When a love affair is mysteriously ended by a Post-it note and followed up by a random street assault, Andy locks himself in his Hell's Kitchen apartment. In solitude, he thinks, he might be able to get a grip on his life. But when he is forced to reemerge six months after the attacks of September 11, the city awaiting him is more bewildering than ever and all the people in his world seem to be part of a vast conspiracy.

Equal parts noir, French farce, and homage to New York, Suspension is a surprisingly heartfelt novel about learning to live in a world where nearly everything is decided behind our backs.
