Book Shots: The Education of a Poker Player/Argosy

17 Jan

The cover image of a tired old man with a loosened tie and granny-ashin’ cigarette was what first made me pick up this book. I thumbed through it for some more sad looking men playing poker, but instead found a cute illustrated pull-out for a men’s magazine called ARGOSY.

Book Shots: How Communication Helps Us

22 Sep

This little book comes by way of the Guadalupe Elementary School in San Jose, California, and marked “Discarded/Obsolete.” The cover alone was worth picking it up. The illustrations inside are made stunning with the use of simple punches of color. A delightfully dated collection of communication concepts.
