Never seen this before... Jan 30, 2007
The graphic design for this book is very original. To my surprise, instead of reprinting the articles in their original formats, the photos of the pages of magazines are taken from a distance and printed here in reduced scale. This has a couple of untimely desiring effects. One is obviously that the fonts are rather small and make it difficult to read. The other is that the pictures on the pages are all skewed as it occurs when you open a thick book, and those effects are doubled by the time you are trying to read the magazines inside a book. I am trying to like it to embrace its originality, but whenever I try to read it, the format gets into my head and makes it difficult to focus on the contents. Maybe it is supposed to take some getting used to before I like all these sexy feminine curves and the virtual experience of looking at the augmented space distortions in the images...
