Notes

Blurbs

"Last of the Red Hot Poppas will make you laugh and it will make you think rather more deeply than will make you comfortable, and in these wildly disjointed times that means this novel is not only a richly enjoyable read but an essential one."
robert olen butler, author of the Pulitzer-Prize winning A Good Scent from a Strange Mountain

Production Details

Poppas was printed in Japan, by Yushin printing.

Inspired by the Chris Ware issue of McSweeney's (#13), we worked an A2 sized poster of a commissioned painting by Leslie Staub into the dust-jacket. Through careful folding we managed to accomplish two things:

  • Provide all pertinent commercial details about the book (price, blurbs, title, etc) while
  • keeping all sales information (price, bar codes, blurbs, author info, etc) *off* the artwork

Between the dust-jacket/poster, case-papers, end-papers, tobira (Japanese style single page "opening" insert) and text papers, Poppas utilizes 5 high-quality paper types.
