Catherine Casalino: Procession of the Dead

New from Grand Central. From the credits, it seems Catherine built a model and photographed it to create this fascinating cover. This is the first in a post-apocalyptic thriller trilogy. A man appears in a city without remembering anything that came before that and meets The Cardinal, the city's monstrous absolute ruler.

Albert Tang: Theodore Roosevelt's History of the United States

New from Smithsonian. I think this might be uncoated. Really beautiful mix of typefaces, stars and a great image. "Theodore Roosevelt's ideas about the nation's early days and his own times can be found sprinkled throughout his volu-minous writings, but these "pearls of thought" (as one of his book reviewers described them in 1888) have never before been pulled together into one volume. Now, through the skillful editing of Daniel Ruddy, Theodore Roosevelt's History of the United States provides readers with Roosevelt's unique view of American history from the Revolution to the beginning of the twentieth century."
