The Conurbation of Grimsby

The indefatigable Peter Terzian interviews David Pearson over at PRINT

Pearson is a footie fan (aren't we all), and his club is Grimsby Town FC (poor sod), described thusly by Wikipedia: "The club is located at Blundell Park in the seaside town of Cleethorpes, part of the conurbation of Grimsby on the Humber estuary."

It's directly between the Slithy Toves and the Tumtum trees.

Some more from last Knopf list

All of these are, happily, either just back from the printer, or on their way to the printer. In any case, all, thank the lord, approved...


Writings from the late architecture critic Herbert Muschamp. Glossy lam.





Stories. Photo by the brilliant Gala Collette, also featured in the photo. To you puctuation-Nazis out there: the reason there is no period after the author name, is that I was told to lose it. Let's pretend it's hiding behind Gala.




Printed on uncoated stock. The black oil is a black foil-stamp.




A Roberto Calasso arriving at last...




A new Nicholas Fox Weber...




Biography of the great art impresario and gallery owner Leo Castelli...


Two titles on War and Dreams...



By the author of WIZARD OF THE CROW. I was asked to give it the same kind of collage treatment...


A roman a clef, about Fellini- The title as subtitle...

For you sticklers of verisimilitude, here was a reject:

Russian poetry (in collaboration with the great Leanne Shapton)...


Bio of Churchill- an actual photo of Sir Winston watching an RAF fighter plane. In case you thought there was some Photoshoppin goin on...



Stories. A bear, a bike, what more do you need to know?



A history of the magazine CONFIDENTIAL.



A freaking brilliant novel from the bona fide genius Peter Carey. Printed on a laid stock. the gold is foil, baby.


And this one came in too:



And this one...


And finally, these- which were reprinted differently from their 2002 form (who sez there are no second acts?). The distressed paper has been removed and they now have pristine backgrounds.




That's some of them, more coming soon. And soon I can move on to Fall 2010.
