foras da lei barulhentos, bolhas raivosas e algumas outras coisas que não são tão sinistras, quem sabe, dependendo de como você se sente quanto a lugares que somem, celulares extraviados, seres vindos do espaço, pais que desaparecem no peru, um homem chamado lars farf e outra história que não conseguimos acabar, de modo que talvez você possa quebrar esse galho (noisy outlaws, unfriendly blobs, and some other things that aren’t as scary, maybe, depending on how you feel about lost lands, stray cellphones, creatures from the sky, parents who disappear in peru, a man named lars farf, and one other story we couldn’t quite finish, so maybe you could help us out), neil gaiman, lemony snicket, nick hornby, jonathan safran foer and others: cosac naify.
_probably the biggest caption of this tumblr.
elegantissima, louise filli: princeton architectural press.
the end of war, john horgan: mcsweeney’s.
just my type – a book about fonts, simon garfield: profile books.

Just My Type is a book of stories about fonts. It examines how Helvetica and Comic Sans took over the world. It explains why we are still influenced by type choices made more than 500 years ago, and why the T in the Beatles logo is longer than the other letters.
an object of beauty, steve martin: grand central publishing/hachette.
[designed by darren booth]
_yes, THAT steve martin.
in the city: a celebration of london music, paul du noyer: virgin books.
[designed by lucy stephens]

o cristianismo é bom para o mundo? [collision: is christianity good for the world?], christopher hitchens & douglas wilson: garimpo editorial.
_a good application of the (sometimes misused) uv coating.
the catcher in the rye, j.d. salinger: penguin.
_it was a strict requirement from j.d. salinger that his books covers could only include the title, his name, and nothing else. that’s why the brazillian version is so lame. that’s also why this penguin version is so beautiful.
