I don’t mean books that are about how to entertain people; I mean books that are entertaining to look at.
On the left, we have The Munchies Eatbook: or how to satisfy the hungries without eating everything in sight. I’m guessing that most people in a “munchies” situation aren’t really going to take the time to break out a recipe (when busting into a bag of Doritos is so much more convenient), but what do I know. Also, the little inset graphic of the strawberries shared between pairs of Rolling-Stones-logo-ish mouths is really pretty strange – I’ve spent way too much time pondering how they decided to go with that particular image.
On the right, we have a perfectly normal photography book … except for the squirrelly-looking dude on the cover. Those glasses! That mustache! Those beady eyes! That wrapped-around-the-camera posture! I’m not sure I want to know what he was taking pictures of.
These books were seen (but not purchased) at a sale the Saturday before last. I didn’t go to any sales at all last weekend.
