"This site represents the obsessions of an atypical book collector" writes graphic designer Shawn Hazen. "While I certainly cherish 'valuable' books, that’s not necessarily what you’ll see here. For
the most part, these are graphically interesting, but otherwise uncollectible." I too have an unruly collection of what I've termed "visual harvest" books: books that I collect strictly for covers or inspirational content. (Perhaps I'll post a few here soon.) My favorites tend toward 60s and 70s text books — often interpreted with far-out geometric assemblages — or nature study books with lots of illustrations.
Check out any number of Hazen's awesome other sites.
Thanks for the link, Trevor!
