Listography

22 Jun
See more of Listography and Music Listography on the Buy Olympia and Chronicle Books websites, and on Michael Gillette’s blog, Pencil Squeezing.
Visit the Listography Books website to see the whole range.

I love these books! I love books that encourage you to write on them, rip them, earmark their corners, spill food on them … in other words, books that encourage you to make your interaction with them a contribution to their design.

Their covers always reflect the internal design: hand-drawn, imperfect, very cute. You can’t really tell from the photos but they’re made of good, thick paper (like a nice journal) with thick cardboard covers, and they even have ribbons to keep your place. I love the detail – gorgeous, bright endpapers to contrast with the vintagey/creamy paper look of the cover and the lists inside.
