The Where of Reading : Field-Tested Books July 12, 2008 – Tags: , , ,

Talk about books and technology. Is the book on life support? The reader? Is information going in? or coming out?

This fantastic screenprint was designed by John Solimine of Spike Press in an edition of 400 for the recent publication of Coudal Partners’ Field-Tested Books. It also serves as the cover art.

For over six years now the folks at Coudal have been asking been asking people to send them 300-500 words about a book they read somewhere; a “certain book read in a certain place.”

The Field-Tested Books book contains three years of reviews featuring 143 entries from more than 90 contributors. It sells for $17 with a portion of the proceeds going to First Book, a charity that buys new books for underprivileged kids.
