McSweeney's Issue 17 continues the series innovative packaging, and is presented as an ordinary bundle of mail, complete with rubber band. There is nothing ordinary in this diverse collection, however. Most impressive was something totally unexpected, an envelope (titled Envelope, of course) filled with thirteen reproductions of new art works. The periodical, Yeti Researcher was especially entertaining, and the included fiction magazine, Unfamiliar, provided the fiction that Dave Eggers & company are known to make available.
My next book is Mental Floss Presents: Forbidden Knowledge.
