The hand-made type experiment got my inner word nerd pretty excited. It looks amazing.

I have to admit, I love judging a book by its cover. Back in the days of yore when I had money to spend, I loved to peruse bookstore shelves and choose a book based on nothing but its title and cover. If your archive page were my bookstore, Jen, I’d choose either “The Cruel Radiance” or “Who Will Run the Frog Hospital.”

Rona, I used to do the same thing, and honestly, I found some of my favourite authors and books that way. (I ended up buying some really disappointing crap, too.) If the book cover archive was a bookstore, I’d definitely pick up “Mr. Peanut” and “Still Life: Adventures in Taxidermy.”
