So, we got our copies of the Kosher Guide the other day. It looks beautiful. Tachyon did a great job with it. It should be available at online sources and in bookstores by April 1st, at the latest.
It’s a fun, deeply silly little book that’s not meant as anything at all serious, but it does pack a lot into 96 pages. Not only Evil Monkey’s discussions with Ann, but an intro by Joseph Nigg, who did the OED’s definitive book on fantastical beasts, an ending section where Ann and Ace of Cakes’ Duff Goldman talk about recipes for imaginary animals, and, of course, descriptions of 34 different creatures, from ET to a headless mule, Sea Monkeys to the Pope Lick Monster. All of this given vision and style by master designer John Coulthart. (We even slipped in an Ian Miller illustration.)
There’s also talk of a very short-run, 34-copy limited edition from Tachyon, for those who collect books.
