Some of our favorite books happen to be about…books. When great writers tackle the topic of their craft directly, we can uncover even more of a connection to them and their work, picking up on literary details and clues that we relate to as readers. We created a series to celebrate this books-on-books theme, with custom jackets that feature a play on a classic tattoo design. These editions are from the publishers Simon & Schuster, Everyman’s Library, and Penguin, and will give layers upon layers of delight to book lovers.
