The Crime and Punishment edition from the 60's with woodcut illustrations is a particularly nice example, as are a couple of others, notably Arabian Knights 2 volume set( pretty erotic pix and text)

Another really wonderful edition is the Keith Harrison illustrated edition of Hudson's Green Mansions, the art is a really necessary addition to the text on that one, and let's also not forget the Tenniel illustrated Alice books...........

Brilliant book and I'd recommend this to anybody with a slight interest in politics or social history. It's also depressing as hell when you realise not much is going to change.

I read that and agreed with most of it but I've since been put off after seeing its author on TV a few times. He just comes across as really irritating. It doesn't help that he looks about 12.

Finished the David Hickey art essay book. Now onto this. One chapter in and I am excited.

 


One of my favorite writers, Robert Anton Wilson, has talked extensively about Buckminster Fuller and his ideas and now that I work at a Library, I can check out Fuller's books.

Elmore Leonard - Swag

After the massive mindfuckery of Blood Meridian this is exactly what I needed. If Cormac McCarthy takes two pages to describe a tree, Elmore Leonard rarely takes more than a sentence to describe anything. It's like listening to Blitzkrieg Bop straight after listening to Bach, or something.

Is a sale like this open to non students? If so, please let me know the next time you have a sale such as this so I can let me dad know. He is a big reader and would enjoy helping a worthy cause.

Has anyone read Magick Without Tears by Aleister Crowley? I printed it out and will be checking it out soon.

The library I work at has all the original editions of Crowley's books but they are held in the Special Collections area, not available for check-out.

Some of his books are in print, but there are quite a few that are not.

Oh, and me and my wife are about 138 pages into this bad boy, one of my faves.
 

This is the 3rd time I am reading it. Read it when I was 19, then again around age 27. I am now 39. I see new shit every time.
