14 Down, 38 To Go

Tony Fitzpatrick evokes nostalgic and personal images of Chicago with the collages in his book The Wonder: Portraits Of A Remembered City Volume 1. The artwork is meticulous (consisting of matchbooks, baseball tickets, candy wrappers and other marginalia), and the reader is transported through the past of the city of big shoulders while paging through this fascinating volume. The book impressed me so much that I was tempted to buy one of the author's available works.

My next book is McSweeney's Quarterly Concern Volume 15, which I've been devouring on the side in bits and pieces for the last week. Here's a preview of my books this month.
