SHAUN SMITH'S SUNDAY SUNDRIES

Share |

A WEEKLY ROUNDUP OF INTERNET CURIOSITIES FROM THE BOOK WORLD

Clowes
Here's a nice little video portrait from NYTs of comics artist Daniel Clowes, with some ooooooh so sensitive music. (And a blockhead narrator.)

Bind
How To Bind a Hardcover Book, as shown by someone who can't draw.

Book
I deleted my Facebook account last month (go ahead, do it yourself, you don't actually need it) because I did not agree with their privacy policies. If I hadn't done it then, I certainly would do it on the news that they are, apparently, trying to assert trademark over the word "book", or says ars technica. (Note, they already have "Face" as well as the letter "F", "Wall", the number "0" with a period in front, and many others.)

Slow
I'm a very, very slow reader to begin with, so this call for a Slow Books movement puts me ahead of the curve for once.

Precocious
Flavourwire gives us 10 of the Most Precocious Authors in Literary History ..."As opposed to the future," he snarked precociously.

Eat
Enjoy some books you can eat at The Edible Book Festival.

Poo
Cooking with Poo wins oddest book title prize (and is hopefully not part of the above festival).
