Cover design by Cathryn S. Aison.
In light of some really cool book cover discoveries this week—notably this edition of Fahrenheit 451, as well as these Cormac McCarthy books which a friend alerted me to—I’m almost reluctant to post today’s edition of A Book By Its Cover because … well, what can follow such coolness?? But good design is good design, and this edition of Me Talk Pretty One Day is good in my books. (Excuse the pun.) I never thought I’d say this, but chalkboard green is pretty fetching! And I like the handwritten font. It imitates a child’s, and I like the playfulness. Matches the trademark humor that Sedaris infuses into his writing.
