Ramblings of an independent bookstore rep



A beautiful mailing of a beautiful book.


We enlisted the help of the entire S&S Adult division to wrap copies of Shelter by Frances Greenslade for a *special* bookseller mailing. We love spoiling our booksellers! 

With pizza, hard work, mad wrapping skillz, we finished 300 books in two hours!

Literature Meets Fashion: John Gall’s Murakami covers X The Sartorialist…

“If there’s anything we love (nearly) as much as beautiful book covers, it’s pretty ladies in colorful ensembles. Enter ex-pat fashion blogger Sera Hur, who has paired John Gall’s wonderful cover designs for Haruki Murakami’s entire catalog with lovely street style images from the Sartorialist, carefully choosing companion images that match each other in color and tone. We don’t know what it is about these mash-ups that’s so compelling — but whether it’s finding a true thread connecting chronically separate universes, or just the delight of seeing a beloved book represented in the skirt of a girl on the street, we’re hooked. Click through for more images, and get inspired to dress a little better — or at least to read more, in your normal clothes.”
—by Emily Temple, Flavorwire.
